Young citizens' panel: a voice for young people

Find out about the work of our young citizens' panel.

The young citizens’ panel (YCP) consists of hundreds of young people aged 11–18 living, working or studying in the borough.

What the YCP offers young people

The opportunity to have your say on how decisions should be made and how money should be spent in the borough.

The YCP has achieved a lot, but with your help it can do so much more.

Why get involved

Crime and safety, leisure facilities and simply whether or not there is enough for young people to do – these are all issues that affect you. If you don't make yourself heard, adults will make the decisions for you.

How it works

Questionnaires, web surveys, group discussions, events and the chance to meet like-minded young people like you. You can join in as much or as little as you like. The YCP is for you and we want to know what you want.

Sound good to you?
