On WEDNESDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 2015 we held our Annual Youth Conference. To celebrate Anti-bullying Week 2015, our conference theme tackled BULLYING and was called “Stand Up To Bullying!”

At the conference we had insparational speeches, Schools showcaseing good practice, workshops and group disccusions that gave young people and adults the chance to share their experiences, express their views and give their opinions on bullying issues with decision makers.

All the views, comments and opinions we gathered during the event have helped us create 6 Recomendations which can be found in our report.

We took your views and the recomendations to a Secondary Head Teachers Meeting to share our findidings with School Leaders in Carmarthenshire to try and bring about change. Our work also fed into the National Young People Bullying Network run by Youg Wales to make sure that young peoples voices influenced National Policy.
