CLC has undertaken a small scale piece of research to capture the opinions, thoughts and worries of children and young people in relation to Brexit. Whilst this is only a snapshot piece, we endeavoured to engage with a wide cross section of young people throughout this jurisdiction. We met with children and young people living in rural communities, in urban communities and in a border areas. We met with a wide range of young people, with a wide range of interests and addressed many issues within the workshops.
It is vitally important that young people’s voices are heard in any Brexit process.
CLC would strongly advocate that the Government needs to undertake a comprehensive consultation exercise with children and young people to ensure views are heard.
