Setting up a Youth Council

0 votes
As part of our post covid regeneration we have formed a Community Hub bringing together many of the voluntary groups in the village. There is a shared view that teenagers in the village have been hit particularly hard and we would like to set up a Youth Council to provide them with a forum.

I would be interested to hear of any experiences fellow Parishes have had.

Is it a subgroup of the Parish Council you are proposing, or a standalone body guided by the parish Council?

If it leads to  youngsters eventually seeking election to the Parish Council it could be a good thing but kids get interested in other things and  go to UNi etc so maintaining a headcount might not be easy. My town Council tried it but how it will function post Covid 19 restrictions remains to be seen.

We envisage it being guided by the Parish Council and our newly formed Community Hub
