Young Researchers


The young researchers group are a committed team of young people who undertake research on issues that affect young people.  Most recently they surveyed more than 800 young people to seek their views on Children's Rights and issues young people are facing in Neath Port Talbot.  They presented their findings to the Children and Young People's Partnership which has the responsibility to develop and commission services for children and young people across the county borough.


The young researchers found that there is a definite need to raise awareness of children's rights with young people in Neath Port Talbot and that many young people responding to the survey had been subjected to bullying at school, in youth clubs and in cyber space.  All of the issues raised are being addressed. There are plans in place to train organisations on children's rights; an anti bullying strategy has been developed and is currently out for consultation.
