Jacob Rhys Evans


Standing for:

Vale of Clwyd

My key issues are:

  • Lower voting age to 16

  • Review the Welsh baccalureate syllabus

  • Improve mental health support

Candidate profile:

I have lived in the Vale of Clwyd my whole life,  I currently attend Ysgol Glan Clwyd and I am a Corporal in the Clwyd and Gwynedd Army Cadet Force.

I am keen to make a difference in the area and to play a part in addressing the issues facing young people today.

The reason I would push for a review of the Welsh Baccalaureate is because many young people feel that time spent on this course would be better utilised on a curriculum for life, covering areas such as finances, the political system and sustainable living. This would provide young people with the knowledge needed to vote on the issues affecting them.

Being in Year 11 myself, and having already sat some GCSEs, I understand the pressure that exams can place on us young people, who at this stage in our lives are also dealing with the general challenges of maturing. I would therefore lobby for more funding to provide better support for us during this difficult period in our lives.  

If elected, I promise to strengthen your voice and ensure the issues facing you are properly addressed. Give me this opportunity and I will not let you down.
