Powys Youth Forum

Powys Youth Forum Members come from across the county. Each young person represents a group or organisation - for example school councils, colleges, local community youth forums, young carers and voluntary organisations in Powys.

The forum meets four times a year for a three day residential. Members of the forum work hard on local and national issues, policies and legislation but it always includes an element of fun.
