What is wimps
Wimps (Where is my Public Servant) is a website set up and developed by a core group of 10 young people from around Northern Ireland. The site’s aim is to build the relationship between young people and their public servants, i.e. the people who make the decisions for them The site has no bias view on politics other than that we feel young people should be able to influence decisions that affect them and be encouraged to take action on issues that they feel are important.
