Youngsters across Ceredigion have had their say on what is most important to them.

More than 2,000 people between the ages of 11 and 18 voted in the 'Rhoi dy Farn 2024' campaign.

Organised by the county's Youth Work and Engagement Service, the ballot gives youths the opportunity to voice concerns on issues they find pressing, shaping the Youth Council's priorities for 2024.

Out of the 2,031 voters, the most popular concerns were affordable housing, followed by mental health and wellbeing, and the escalating cost of living crisis.

Chairperson of Ceredigion Youth Council, Rosa Waby, said: "The 'Rhoi Dy Farn 2024' campaign has empowered young people throughout the county to voice their concerns on the issues that are important to them.

"It is exciting to see this engagement, and the results have shed light on the pressing concerns of our youth."

Councillor Wyn Thomas also voiced his appreciation for the campaign's results.

The cabinet member for schools, lifelong learning and skills, said: "The subjects raised by young people in Ceredigion are very important, combining local and global issues.

"These are extremely important issues that deserve further consideration."

Moving forward, Ceredigion Youth Council plans to pose a series of questions in response to the ballot results to a panel of public figures by July 2024.

A tradition held now for seven years, this effort aims to ensure the voice of Ceredigion's young people continues to be heard on matters that shape their future.
