Bringing democracy to the next generation
Working in partnership with Wycombe Youth Action, Wycombe District Council recently kicked off the new Wycombe Youth Council when they welcomed 11 elected youth councillors from six local schools.
Cllr David Carroll, Cabinet Member for Youth, greeted the youth councillors in the Council Chamber. He said: “It was great to meet these enthusiastic youth councillors. The event was full of energy with much interest from the young people about how the Council works and how they can be involved in having their say on decisions that affect them, their friends and family.”
The new youth council supports the council’s objective to engage with young people to help meet their needs and aspirations locally and provide them with a platform to have a say on what the council does.
