Young Wales Rhondda Cynon Taff

Your youth forum is a fantastic way to get involved in your local community, and to tackle issues that affect children and young people where you live. Every forum in Wales works differently but the issues are always identified by young people who then campaign for change. Some areas also have children's forums.

The forum will be using this page to share what they're doing. Come back soon to find out what's going on.


Rhondda Cynon Taf Youth Inspectors have been really busy inspecting local youth provision. They have recently completed 6 local inspection against the 7 Participation Standards and a National Inspection against the Youth Information Standards. As a result of the national inspection Llanharan Drop in have been recommended and awarded a kite mark. In the picture with the Youth Inspectors is councillor Hopkins and he is also the champion for Children’s Rights in RCT.

There are currently 21 Young Inspectors in Rhondda Cynon Taf and ten more young people are waiting to be trained up in August. The inspectors meet one Saturday a month and are currently working on planning a mental health conference to take place early 2016.
