More than 80 young people have had their say about Swansea Council’s latest budget proposals at a special event for secondary schools.
The pupils representing 12 comprehensive schools across the city gathered at Bishop Vaughan Catholic School where they examined the plans and then asked questions and delivered their own opinions and ideas.
Their views will now be taken into account as part of the wider budget consultation that closes this Friday (Jan 26). In 2018/19 the council needs to find £22m in savings but plans to commit additional money to schools and education.
Swansea residents still have time to take part in the draft budget consultation before it closes on Friday by visiting: swansea.gov.uk/budgetsurvey
Hard copies of the consultation are available at libraries, the Civic Centre and Guildhall.
