North Norfolk District Council is forming a Youth Council to ensure that young people in the district have a voice on the issues that impact them now and in the future.

The first step of forming a Youth Council is to create a Steering Group who will work to shape what the Youth Council will look like.

We are now recruiting young people for the steering group and we are looking for young people who:

  • Are aged 11-18
  • Live within North Norfolk
  • Have an interest in shaping services and projects around the district
  • Want to develop their leadership and communication skills
  • Are passionate about youth representation and advocacy for all young people
  • Available for a full-day workshop on Monday, 24 October, 2022

The Council is undertaking this project in partnership with the British Youth Council.

“We are really excited about establishing a Youth Council at NNDC. This is a great opportunity for young people across the District to be involved in making decisions that can affect their communities.

“We are working closely with the British Youth Council on this project and are delighted to be able to offer our youth councillors training and learning opportunities provided by BYC, as well as access to peer networks nationwide.

"We look forward to working with the steering group to shape a youth council to represent young people across North Norfolk.”
