Hey guys!

Made in Tredegar Film Studios are going to be making a film about the issues we face as young people in Blaenau Gwent.

I'm looking for a little time from young people and information about things that cause a problem for you or maybe have caused problems in the past.

Let me give you an example:

I know that there is an issue with drugs in my local area, a number of my friends have been taking meow (Mephedrone) and a few others smoke weed (Cannabis). Another issue I faced not so long ago was trying to find a job. I found it difficult because there aren't many jobs out there, and most young people may have good qualifications but then lack the experience or may be don't drive which. Also another hot topic at the moment is money, and I know a lot of people will be effected by the new bedroom tax.

So this information can be anything from problems you've had, to your opinions and views.

If you'd like to volunteer and give up some of your time to share what really bugs you or has caused you problems then just submit a comment below saying you would like to take part, or if you want just, submit a comment on the "Contact Us" page of Made in Tredegars website (the links below)

Thank you.
