Registration open for Young Wales Brexit Question Time


Young people aged 10 to 20 are able to register to put their questions to a panel of experts on the 24th October 2018, at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay.


The event will be chaired by James Williams, BBC Cymru Wales' Brexit correspondent, and questions will be put to a panellists with a range of expertise, with one more panellist to be confirmed:

  • Meri Huws, Welsh Language Commissioner

  • Mari Arthur, Director of Cynnal Cymru/ Sustain Wales


We want to know what is important to young people about Wales, the European Union and Brexit. It's an opportunity for children and young people to ask about Brexit, about how it might affect travelling and studying in the UK, or rights and equality in Wales after Brexit, or farming and food production, or safe and happy communities.


Questions need to be submitted in advance; this way we can group similar questions together and make sure that as many different questions are answered as possible on the night.


To book your place, and submit your questions, please complete this form, and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Wednesday 10th October.

Spotlight Report - Article 31

The Children’s Commissioner for Wales has published a Spotlight Report – Article 31: the right for all children to have rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities and to participate in cultural life and the arts.  This is accompanied by a child and young person friendly online video storyboard which summarises the key messages and findings.


The main issues are directed at Local Authorities and include:

* Promoting the right to play and recreation and that the local authority has a key part to play in this; 

* Ensuring that there are arrangements in place for all children and young people to have meaningful opportunities to be involved in decisions that affect them, particularly in relation to the statutory play sufficiency processes.


For other organisations who are involved in delivering play, leisure, sport, arts, culture and heritage opportunities across Wales the message is to ensure that the key messages contained in the report are considered within the context of their work and to consider having discussions about adopting a Children’s Rights Approach.

Do you know your rights?


Meic, the helpline service for children and young people up to the age of 25 in Wales, has released a new interactive video, to help children and young people to get a better understanding of their rights, and what they can do if they aren’t being listened to.

You can follow the video campaign from 24 July 2017 on Meic’s Facebook (@meic.cymru), Twitter (@meiccymru) and Instagram (@meic.cymru).

Securing Wales' Future - Brexit

Securing Wales’ Future Moving from the European Union to a new relationship with Europe

In June 2016 there was a vote:  Do we want to stay part of the European Union (EU) or leave?

A majority of people in the UK voted ‘leave’.


  • The Single Market

Having a Single Market makes buying and selling (trading) between EU countries much easier.


  • Moving to Wales

People move between EU countries for work and study.


  • Funding

Countries pay to be a member of the EU and also receive funding from the EU.

We get about £680 million in EU funding each year.

The amount of funding Wales gets from the EU is more than we pay in.


  • Welsh Government powers

Wales has its own government. We work to improve the lives of people in Wales.


  • Protections for people and the environment

The UK has been part of the EU for more than 40 years.  There are lots of laws and policies that have been good for Wales.


  • Avoiding disruption

Leaving the EU isn’t simple.  There’s a part of EU law called Article 50.  It gives any EU country the right to leave.  It also sets out how to leave.


  • Next steps

We’re going to keep you updated on our plans to leave the EU.
