Carmarthenshire Youth Council (or CYC as we call it) was set up in September 2003 by young people for young people. We are a group of young people aged 11 – 25 years old from across Carmarthenshire who act as a voice for young people by represent the views and opinions of all young people in the county.
“young people have a right to be heard and their views and opinions should be treated as equal to adults.”
We believe that “young people have a right to be heard and their views and opinions should be treated as equal to adults.”
“by creating opportunities for young people to participate meaningfully in decision making on issues that impact on their lives and to bring about positive change.”
We have been working with Officers from Education Services and Youth Support Services from Carmarthenshire County Council on Period Poverty. It is such an important issue that affects so many women and young girls: one in ten girls aged 14-21 living in the UK are unable to afford sanitary items
