Previous work

The first Youth Voice Wales Team has hugely impacted work in Wales, including shaping ‘Mind our Future’ – a £10 million grant programme to support young people’s mental health and resilience. 

The panel members have also been involved in The National Lottery Community Fund and ITV Wales ‘People’s Projects’. The Team panel have also presented at national youth and funding events across the UK.

What skills are they looking for?

Applicants should have good communication skills and be able to work well as part of a team. You’ll need knowledge of your communities needs and be able to make decisions.

As well as this, they would like at least one of the three new members to be able to communicate in Welsh.

What’s the commitment level?

Successful applicants will work approximately eight hours a month. You will need a flexible approach to travel across regions and attend induction and residential.
