- Youth Councils

Somerset Youth and Community Service has a long history of promoting and providing youth councils across Somerset and has a lot of experience of creating and sustaining youth councils. If you're interested in setting one up, or would like to make more of the one you have, please contact us (see below).

We also have a range of tried and tested youth council training sessions which you can download below.  Each session is for between 12 and 15 participants and lasts about 75 minutes.
