The nature of being a committee of young people means that it is ever changing but this is something that we actively encourage – at Wrexham Warehouse we are here to provide experience and opportunities for young people to grow and reach their goals. Many of our original committee members have done exactly this and their experience at the Warehouse has helped them successfully apply to university, gain employment and widen their involvement in the community.
The great thing about being a committee member is that once you join us you can always be involved regardless of whether you are in university, how far away you live or how busy you become. Our Away Team is based around the country and plan events, campaigns and fundraisers via social media, Skype and meetings at the warehouse.

2015 will see some excitement work from the away team in partnership with the LOTS Coordinator, the Youth Committee, partner organisations and the WWP team!
The committee has helped all its members in different ways and continues to do so:
Although I was in Abewrystwyth University and lived away during term time I was still able to get involved in the committee meetings during my breaks or even via Skype! During my time on the committee I organised a FIFA Tournament and the Y-Fest event. I am now a member of the Away Team and I am involved in promoting the warehouse and looking for exciting opportunities wherever I go!Richard Roberts, aged 21
