Next year in 2021, the Senedd Elections will mark the first time people aged 16 will be able to vote. That means in May, approximately 200,000 people will be voting for the first time. We need to consider what this means for election campaigns, manifestos and what this means for the future of wales.

Bethany has been passionate about getting involved in local projects and volunteering since the age of 11 and using her voice to ensure that young people are involved with and heard by decision makers in the region. #BuildBackBetter
