Petitioning the Senedd is a way of raising something that matters to you. It can be an effective way to bring an issue to the attention of the Senedd and the Welsh Government, or to suggest a new approach or policy which could be taken forward in Wales. You can create a petition on our website or support other petitions by signing them.

There are an agreed set of standards for petitions, including that they must call for an action that is within the powers of the Senedd or Welsh Government.

Petitions with enough supporters are referred to the Petitions Committee. The Petitions Committee will consider evidence and decide what it can do to take the petition further.
