Following last year’s success, Ceredigion Youth Service are fortunate to accept another opportunity generously provided by West Wales Holiday Cottages to support young people with a cash bursary again this year.

The purpose of the £600 bursary is to provide an opportunity for young people aged 11-25, to help them with their future aspirations. The successful application(s) will be chosen by Ceredigion Youth Forum, which is a panel made up of young people from all over Ceredigion who access Ceredigion Youth Service provision.

Gwion Bowen, Ceredigion Youth Service’s Children and Young People’s Participation Officer said, “We are very grateful and appreciative to West Wales Holiday Cottages for providing us with this opportunity for young people in Ceredigion again this year. Like ourselves, West Wales Holiday Cottages recognise that many young people living in Ceredigion may experience difficulties in accessing training, support and social activities due to socio-economic issues. The bursary was extremely successful last year, with two young people gaining financial support to help them with their projects. We hope that the bursary is a success again this year, and that it will benefit a young person in Ceredigion.”

Councillor Catrin Miles, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Learning Services and Lifelong Learning said, “It’s great to hear of opportunities like these within Ceredigion that can enable young people to pursue their aspirations. Ceredigion’s Youth Service received a lot of interest last year, and I hope that it will receive more interest this year. Ceredigion County Council would like to wish the best of luck to young people in Ceredigion.”
