Mae’r Fforwm Ieuenctid yn grŵp o bobl ifanc o Grangetown sydd eisiau helpu’r ardal i dyfu a datblygu. Maent rhwng 14 oed ac 20 oed ac yn cefnogi’r digwyddiadau a’r gweithgareddau niferus sy’n digwydd yn y gymuned. Mae’r grŵp yn darparu cyfleoedd yn bennaf i bobl ifanc ymgysylltu â nifer o weithgareddau yn Grangetown fel y fforwm busnes, clybiau pêl-droed ac ymweliadau Prifysgol, ac maen nhw’n dweud wrth unigolion yn eu cymuned am waith Porth Cymunedol, Tîm Pafiliwn y Grange, a Phrifysgol Caerdydd.
Mae’r Grangetown News wedi canmol gwaith y Fforwm Ieuenctid yn y gorffennol, gan nodi “ar adeg pan mae cymaint o negyddoldeb tuag at bobl ifanc mae aelodau Fforwm Ieuenctid Pafiliwn Grange yn glod i gymuned Grangetown ac yn codi i’r achlysur i arddangos nad ydyn nhw’n gynrychioliadol o ystrydeb y lleiafrif bach sy’n gadael y gymuned i lawr ac yn aml yn cael y sylw. ”
Yn 2017, mynychodd y Fforwm Ieuenctid Wobrau Cenedlaethol Gemau Stryd ac ennill Gwobr Ymgysylltu Drws Genedlaethol am yr holl waith a wnaethant i sicrhau bod chwaraeon yn dod yn rhan fwy o’r gymuned.
Yn ddiweddar, cynhaliodd newyddion ITV stori newyddion am glwb pêl-droed merched yn unig Grangetown, yn cynnwys eu hyfforddwr Ayah Abduldaim, aelod o’r Fforwm Ieuenctid.
Yng Ngŵyl Grangetown 2019, dyfarnwyd Gwobr Joan Gallagher flynyddol i’r Fforwm Ieuenctid am Hyrwyddwyr Cymunedol hefyd.
Isod, mae proffiliau rhai o aelodau allweddol y Fforwm Ieuenctid. Mewn cyfweliad un i un fe wnaethant ddatgelu sut a pham y gwnaethant gymryd rhan yn y grŵp, a rhai ffeithiau difyr amdanynt eu hunain!
