Cardiff Citizens Panel

​The Citizens' Panel is made up of local residents from across Cardiff who have agreed to give their views on a number of consultation topics throughout the year. Panel members share their views by completing surveys and occasionally taking part in other activities like focus groups, workshops, or forums. 

Why does Cardiff need a panel?

The Citizens' Panel can be a reliable and cost effective way of finding out what the people of Cardiff think about the services available to them. By listening to the views of members the Council can:

  • learn more about the experiences of specific groups or communities, 
  • help ensure that high standards of service delivery are maintained, and 
  • reliably inform the Council’s decision making process.

How do I join?

Membership of the panel is open to everyone, however we would be especially keen to hear from you if you are aged under 30.

If you would like to request an application pack then please contact us, or: 

Cardiff Young Citizens Panel
