We are delighted to have won a Welsh Government Youth Work Excellence Award with BGC Wales and Deryn for our partnership work on Raise Your Voice.
Raise Your Voice is a democracy project which amplifies the voices of young people in Wales, providing spaces in which young people can explore issues they care about, express their opinions and access information about democracy and elections.
We are very happy that our partnership work and the project has been recognised for its impact across Wales. We are particularly proud of the young people who, through paid commissions, created content (including videos, podcasts, blogs and spoken word) for the Raise Your Voice website.
Thank you to every young person who took part in Raise Your Voice. This award is for you!
You can visit the Raise Your Voice website and view the digital content created by young people here: https://raiseyourvoice.wales/stories/
Receiving this award demonstrates the need to continue raising the voices of young people in our communities, by sharing power and working together to create a more inclusive and accessible democracy.
