About Us

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.

The site is split into two main sections: info, and blog.

  • 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, reviews of the latest films, and raising awareness of important issues 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’s a few of our recent campaigns:
