We are running an online Welsh Elections & You event for deaf young people all about the elections.

We’ve invited Members of the Senedd from Labour, the Conservatives, Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats to answer your questions.

This gives you the perfect opportunity to tell politicians what you want to see from them in the future and to ask them what they will do for you.  

This is a unique event that will offer an exciting debate on the future of Wales and you. Find out more about the elections here!

Who can take part?

You can register for our event if you:

  • Are deaf
  • Are 16 – 25 years old
  • Live in Wales

You will also need to have access to a computer, smartphone or tablet, and an internet connection.

When is the event?

The event will take place on Thursday 15 April from 7pm – 8pm .

You can write any questions you want to ask the politicians on the sign up form.  

Where is the event taking place?

The event will take place on Zoom. Once your place is confirmed, we will send all the information you need to join.
