What is TheSprout?
TheSprout is Cardiff’s online magazine and information website for 11-25’s, by 11-25’s and organisations that wish to support them.
- Info is where you can find lots of information and support for topics affecting young people such as leaving school, bullying, and money worries. Under each section, you’ll find a bunch of really handy links to local and national organisations which can help you out with whatever you may need.
- Blog is where our amazing articles written by young people are shared. There’s something here for everyone – from local opportunities, finding out about someone’s story, and raising awareness of important topics like children’s and young people’s rights.
Each season, we release a new campaign surrounding issues that matter to young people, by young people in Cardiff. Here are some of our recent campaigns:
- Voices Of Lockdown: COVID-19 Experiences
- #YouDeserve: Healthy Relationships
- The Future Is Feminist
- Summer of Smiles
- Postcards From The Future
- Supporting Young Cardiffians
