The project is intended to develop the democracy section of our Golwg360 news website, specifically targeting young people from 16 years of age who are voting for the first time.

We will be gathering information regarding how young people are involved with politics and the news at the moment, and working within specific areas of Arfon, Ceredigion and Cardiff in the first instance finding out which issues are important to them. Although the initial project concentrates on young people who are voting for the first time, and the 2021 Election specifically, the long term goal would be to develop a broader news service for children and young people.
