Youth Voice Hub





Why should you get involved?

The Youth Voice Team offer a range of activities and opportunities so that children and young people can choose to take part in a way that suits them.

When you belong in the Youth Voice space, you will;

  • Develop new skills and build your confidence
  • Work with important decision makers
  • Create change for other children and young people
  • Have fun!

You get to be the change you wanna see, you don’t end up waiting around for other people who aren’t in your situation trying to solve things for you, you can actually go out there and do the things you know need to be done. I've not been involved for very long and I've already had so many opportunities
