Letter: Protect Funky Dragon!

Jana Hainsworth sent a letter to First Minister for Wales in support of Wales’ National Children and Young People’s Assembly

Funky Dragon (Wales’ National Children and Young People’s Assembly), which has provided a national platform for young people across Wales to influence the policies of the Welsh Government and the National Assembly for the past 12 years, is set to be closed down.

The Welsh Government decided to withdraw core funding for Funky Dragon with effect from 30 September 2014 and announced that no other Welsh Government funding will be made available. Without Funky Dragon, Wales will be the only nation in the UK or Europe without its own national Youth Assembly.

Eurochild Secretary General, Jana Hainsworth, sent a letter to Carwyn Jones AM, the First Minister for Wales in support of Funky Dragon's campaign. You can read the letter here.
