Do you want to make a difference for the young people in North Norfolk? North Norfolk Youth Council was formed in 2023 and we are always looking for new people to join us.

About us

We are a group of young people from across the district, all aged between 11 and 18 years old, who have joined together to make a difference.

As a Youth Council, our main objectives are:

  • To improve education and understanding of the challenges that young people face in North Norfolk
  • Mental health support for young people
  • Environmental issues and the impact of climate change on North Norfolk

We believe these are crucial issues for our age group as they affect us now and will affect future generations.

If you are aged between 11 and 18 and are interested in joining us, please email

We currently hold our meetings at 6pm on the last Thursday of the month via Zoom.

Meet the North Norfolk Youth Council

Nathan Birdsall: Vice-Chairman

Nathan is 15 years old and has lived in North Walsham all his life. His interests include gaming, watching historical programs and listening to music.

I was previously the head boy at my junior school, where I discussed ways to improve the learning environment and education for pupils. I am passionate about young people's problems and always strive to give my peers a platform to voice their opinions. I have been proactive in raising awareness for education in schools by speaking to the MP, Duncan Baker. I discussed the need for practical lessons inside schools so that all young people can learn the appropriate skills for life.

I hope being in the Youth Council will develop my knowledge and awareness of issues in North Norfolk. My main aim will be to improve education for all young people in North Norfolk, so everyone receives equal opportunities.

Summer Rayner

Summer is 12 years old and has lived in North Norfolk all her life. She's confident, hardworking and loves getting involved in different projects.

I feel so lucky to be part of the North Norfolk Youth Council. North Norfolk is my home, and attend Cromer Academy, where I am part of the school youth council.

I joined North Norfolk Youth Council because I wanted to make positive changes to our community and have an impact for the better.

Tyler Wragg

Tyler Wragg: Chairman

Tyler Wragg is 16 years old and has lived in Cromer all his life. He studies politics and government, history and law at Jane Austen College and loves sports! Even though he's born and bred here, he's a loyal West Ham supporter!

I am lucky enough to be a member of the NNYC steering group! And always been a very vocal member of the younger community in north Norfolk! I have written, met and spoken to our MP several times and was head boy at Cromer Academy! Education and the environment are fundamental to the work NNYC needs to do! However, mental health awareness would be my most significant campaign for the NNYC because I have raised money for mental health charities.

I look forward to working closely with the council and various groups around North Norfolk to promote the ideas and values of young people! I was fortunate enough to win a Cromer town honours award for the money we raised at Cromer Academy and have represented the academy at public speaking competitions.

Aaron joined the North Norfolk Youth Council to pitch ideas for what could happen around the North Norfolk area.

I have been part of my School's Council and have felt we, as younger people, have always been dominated in relevance by the older generations, and the younger generation should have a voice.
