Supporting ethnic minority young people in Gwent

1st August 2023

This week my team visited Pillgwenlly to meet partners from Ethnic Minorities Youth Support Team Wales (EYST).

EYST has funding from my office to provide weekly drop-in sessions for young people from ethnic minority backgrounds across Gwent. They currently run sessions in Abergavenny, Maindee and Pillgwenlly.

These young people are often vulnerable, and the sessions allow them to take part in a range of activities and trips, while receiving mentoring from positive adult role models.

My community fund is currently open for applications. More information is available on my website.
