Recently I signed a pledge to help end youth homelessness in Wales and today an extra £2.1 million has been awarded by the Cabinet Secretary to help make this a reality. 

People deserve a safe, warm and secure home and I am proud that the Welsh Government are making this a key priority. In addition to the £8 million funded through the Homelessness Prevention Programme and £6 million allocated to local authorities, this money has the potential to make a real difference to people's lives.

Fantastic to visit the Clinical Research and Innovation Centre with the Cabinet Secretary to meet patients, staff and researchers. A great opportunity to hear about the leading research and developments taking place at St Woolos Hospital.

You can read more about this on the South Wales Argus website.

It was great to chat to Newport High's Student Voice on their visit to the Senedd.

They put me on the spot with some tricky questions about WRU's takeover of the dragons and youth participation in politics. Lots of bright, engaged students that were a credit to Newport.

If you, your school or organisation would like to visit the Senedd please contact my office on 01633 376627 or email jayne.bryant@assembly.wales.
