About our panel
Established in 2016, this panel is made up of 12 – 18 members of children and young people between the ages of 11 to 18. They have three full-day meetings a year and its Chair and vice-Chair are also members of our advisory panel.
This advisory panel holds us to account on the delivery of our three year and annual work plans.
Here are our current members, recruited from across Wales…
