Youth Council

This is an elected group of young people aged 13 to 19 who live, work or study or are looked after by the borough. Its purpose is to give young people a ‘voice’ that is listened to by decision makers and to involve them in decisions about issues and services that affect young people.

Youth Council members represent their schools and youth projects, develop ways to find out the views of young people throughout the borough and make sure decision-makers listen to them. They also give their opinions on activities and services and how they can work best for young people.
