Young Mayor: Bridgend

BIOGRAPHY

I am currently 19 years old and live in Bridgend County Borough. I am studying health and social care in Bridgend college and aspire to be a Social Worker. Along with being on the Youth Council I am also on Funky Dragon, the children and young people's assembly for Wales and have been a member since July 2011 and I am also the UK Young Ambassador for Wales on European issues. They consume all my time really!

 

WHAT I PLAN TO DO WHILE IN OFFICE

Improving the link between Bridgend Youth Council and Bridgend County Borough Council – we believe that to make a profound positive impact on the lives of Bridgend’s youth, the Youth Council and the BCBC need to have a strong link in order for the voices of Bridgend’s youth to be heard.

Publicizing youth democracy in Bridgend County Borough – we believe that for the Youth Council to be able to do its job properly, young people need to know how we work and how they can get involved in order to have their opinions listened to and respected.

Bridgend Youth Council has 3 sub-committees to tackle for 2013-14 - smoke-free playgrounds, substance misuse and transport. Smoke free playgrounds has achieved its goal of creating a system of discouragement, substance misuse are working on publicising available facilities, and transport aim on making Bridgend’s transport more accessible to young people.
