Cardiff is working with Unicef UK as part of a 3 year partnership in the Child Friendly City programme. They are aiming to embed children’s rights across public services. To ensure that the voice of children and young people are at the heart of decision making they have established a Children & Young People’s Advisory Board.

Unicef UK are looking to expand the membership of this board and are currently recruiting new members. They are looking for a wide range of young people aged 11-18. They would particularly like to hear from young people who are:

  • A young carer
  • A person with a disability
  • A young Gypsy/Traveller/Roma
  • LGBTQ
  • Unemployed

This is a great opportunity for young people to develop skills, meet friends and shape an exciting programme of work across Cardiff.

You can find further information here including a registration of interest form.

To register an interest young people have to complete the registration of interest form and send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. asap.

Cardiff Third Sector Council would like to invite Public Sector Organisations to register and join us for a conference on ‘Improving engagement to meet the needs of diverse communities’

C3SC and Diverse Cymru have been running a project to understand barriers diverse communities face to involvement. We also aim to change how public sector organisations involve diverse individuals and communities. Public sector organisations have been working with diverse individuals to co-produce a new way of engaging more effectively. This project has been funded by the Open Government Network Wales.

The Your Well-being, Your Government project invites you to join us as we launch this new, improved model for engaging diverse citizens.

This event is your opportunity, as a public sector organisation in Wales, to discuss the new way of delivering involvement of diverse communities and how you could implement it in your area of Wales.

The project is looking to support you to:

  • Reach and actively involve more diverse citizens from all protected characteristic groups
  • Deliver improved engagement fulfilling the involvement duty of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015
  • Deliver improved services and initiatives towards the well-being goal of a more equal Wales
