WICID.tv (for Rhondda Cynon Taf)

WICID.tv is the youth information and media website for young people by young people. The website was launched in 2011 and has been working ever since to give young people aged 9-25 access to creative opportunities and provide a pathway into their chosen career. WICID.tv also has lots of information for young people and can help direct them to organisations that can offer specialist advice, support and guidance.

The website is maintained by YEPS (Youth Engagement and Participation Service) in association with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council (RCT). YEPS offers young people in RCT access to a variety of free activities during lunch times, after school and through the school holidays. It also runs youth clubs (between 5pm and 8pm most evenings) that young people aged 11-25 can attend.
