As part of their NexGen Vision, the Bridgend Active Young People Department (AYPD) aim to;

  • develop sustainable and efficient ways of working that maximize current partnerships and collaborations;
  • create feasible delivery pathways that are sustainable and achieve maximum impact for the young people the projects seek to serve;
  • develop research protocols that provide valuable insight into project impact that can be utilized when attracting external funding opportunities.

Long term, the work of AYPD will seek to ensure the sustainability of prevention and wellbeing provision for young people by providing training and resources to schools and local communities. It is hoped that through this, groups will become empowered to deliver projects themselves, thus reducing the current reliance on delivery by current service providers and ensuring project sustainability and longevity.

Steering Group:
In a bid to achieve the above aims, AYPD are looking to engage with external stakeholder, young people, and community members through the AYPD NexGen Steering Group. The purpose of the group will be to review the aims, delivery and outcomes of projects, review AYPD Wellbeing objectives, share knowledge and advocate on behalf of young people in Bridgend.

Why join?
As well as a chance to affect important issues in your community and working with the team towards their vision, becoming a NexGen Steering Group member will give you valuable insight into how children and young people’s wellbeing services work and will provide you with opportunities to develop your skills and gain experience.

Along with this, you will enhance your professional networks and collaborate with other professions/industries to achieve the shared goal of improving the health and wellbeing of young people in Bridgend.
