Young people at the UCount2 Forum

Young people have been talking about their problems and issues in a workshop held on the Island.

UCount2 took place at Cronk y Berry School, involving 40 teenagers.

The participants said teachers, police, youth workers and GPs listened to them, but felt older people, parents, siblings and shop workers didn't have time for them.

They used art, drama, video and animation to express their concerns.

Education and Children Minister Eddie Teare was a guest at the forum, and suggested they could contact their MHKs if they have worries.

A video of the day will be posted on the Youth Service's website.
