Commissioned Project

The aims of the project were to:

  • Enable parish and town councils to make space for young people's voice to be heard, within their formal structures
  • Enable local elected members and decision makers to support youth parish and town councils
  • Enable the groups to carry out appropriate research within their communities
  • Involve young people in the planning and delivery of the projects
  • Work alongside young people to develop projects and opportunities for their voice to be heard within their communities (£1,000 project budget provided per group)
  • Actively support and enable young people to campaign on their chosen issues
  • Enable the groups to make links with other youth councils and other youth voice groups across the county
  • Agree a support strategy to sustain the groups after the funded period

Nine youth councils have been developed and are continuing as a result of this project - these new youth councils are in Cotford, Crewkerne, Burnham & Highbridge, Dulverton, North Petherton, Somerton, Street, Watchet and Wellington. Some of these youth councils have their own pages on our website - if you can't find the one you're looking for, contact us and we'll put you in touch.
