Detailed information: Jayne Bryant MS


Born and brought up in Newport, it is a privilege to represent the city I live in and love.

First elected as the MS for Newport West in 2016, I was appointed Chair of the Standards of Conduct Committee in the Fifth Senedd, and sat on the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee.

Re-elected in 2021, I was nominated to Chair the Children, Young People and Education Committee in this Sixth Senedd. I also sit on the Local Government and Housing Committee.

I Chair the Cross-Party Groups on Diabetes; Preventing Child Sexual Abuse; Arts and Health and Suicide Prevention, and act as Vice Chair for the Cross-Party Groups on Dementia and Intergenerational Solidarity.

All my working life I have tried to help advocate and support people with issues and problems. Within Newport West, I regularly raise and campaign on peoples’ concerns regarding health and wellbeing; the environment and climate change; transport; and tackling inequality. I’m particularly passionate about encouraging young people to be active and interested in politics. Politics matters and young people must be at the heart of it.
