S3 Safe Space to Speak Logo

Delivery Plan

Following consultation, the YPMC noted that the majority of young people want to feel represented, and listened to, by people in power who make decisions that affect them. Fuelled by this demand, the YPMC will establish Safe Space to Speak/ Safle Saft i Siarad (S3), a representative group for young people separate from traditional power structures, which is youth led from the outset. Its overall aims are set out in their Manifesto, with a focus on campaigning for systemic change for the benefit of young people.

S3’s primary task will be to campaign for better services in support of young people’s mental health and wellbeing. It will begin in Ceredigion, but its aims are far more wide-reaching. S3 want to create a model that other counties and organisations can follow, particularly in relation to their ideal view of safe spaces.
