It also allows us to be heard and put forward our voices in the community. The youth council gives me something to be part of and I love being in it and getting to meet so many amazing people.”
Caitlin – Youth Councillor
“I joined the youth council as I believe all young people should be able to have a voice and give their say on the local community.
This is important particularly to me as I think there is a lot of subjects that need to be more widely spoken about i.e mental health. As it can could save someone’s life if they know they’re not alone.
The youth council has taught me so much and has given me a different perspective on the world. It is really nice to have somewhere to go so people’s voices are heard and listened to. In my opinion it makes me feel more confident.”
