Detailed information: Elin Morris


Elin was a Member of the first Welsh Youth Parliament from 2018 to 2021.

The following was her candidate statement for election to the first Welsh Youth Parliament:

My key issues are:

  • Mental health and the difficulty of accessing support services
  • Fixing the education system that excludes and ignores those with SEND
  • Support services for LGBTQ+ youth and providing equal SRE in schools

My name is Elin Morris, I’m 16 years old and I’m so pleased to be a Welsh Youth Parliament Member.

No person deserves to be excluded because of someone else's ignorance or ineptitude. I left school at 14 due to the inability of the current education system to adapt to the needs of those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Despite ongoing difficulties with education since then, I am now studying towards a degree and I'm enjoying every moment of it.

I have anxiety and depression and I deal with trauma caused by bullying. Consequently, I have been receiving support from CAMHS for the past 3 and a half years, including three months in inpatient services. I believe that if we fail to support young people with their mental health, it will have catastrophic effects during the next few decades.

I'm a bit of a misfit, an avid football fan and a firm believer in social equality. I look forward to the next few months.
