Youth Engagement and Progression Officers (YEPO’s)

We are a team of 5 qualified Youth Workers across RCT covering the Rhonnda Fawr and Rhondda Fach Valleys, Cynon Valley, Taf and Ely Valleys

We offer IAG (Information, Advice & Guidance) and 121 support for young people aged 16-25 years to address issues such as: relationships, homelessness, mental health, family issues, identity, education and employment. We can meet with you at college/school, in a community setting or chat through phone call, text or Zoom.

We manage the Youth Forums empowering and supporting young people to have a voice within their community and the County of RCT.
We deliver issue based workshops and IAG Drop-in sessions at Colleges

We are also online for a live chat on WICID.TV every Thursday 12-2pm
