Starting a petition is a great way to use your voice for something that matters to you.

All petitions with 250 or more signatures are looked at by the Petitions Committee.

It can decide to:

  • ask for information about the petition from the Welsh Government or other relevant organisations
  • send the petition to another committee to look at
  • hear more from the individual(s) or organisation who started the petition
  • write a report on the petition, and make recommendations to the Welsh Government
  • request time to debate the petition in a Plenary meeting
  • close the petition
