Our Aim is to make Cardiff a Child Friendly City

Cardiff is the first city in Wales to participate in the UK committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK)’s national Child Friendly Cities and Communities initiative. Our ambition is for Cardiff to be recognised as a Child Friendly City (CFC): a city with children and young people at its heart, where the rights of children and young people are respected by all, a great place to grow up.

We will work together to create a city where all children and young people can share their voice and have an input on decisions being made that will affect them.
