The UK Government is changing how we vote. From May 2023, you will need to show photo ID when you vote at a polling station.
Do you want to make a difference for the young people in North Norfolk? We are a group of young people looking for others to join us in forming a Youth Council for North Norfolk.
We are a group of young people from across the district, all aged between 12 and 17 years old, who have joined together to help make a difference.
As a Youth Council, our main objectives will be:
- to improve education and understanding about the challenges that young people face in North Norfolk
- mental health services
- environmental issues around North Norfolk
These are crucial issues to our age group as they affect us now and will affect generations in the future.
Meet the North Norfolk Youth Council Steering Group
Millie is 12 years old and attends Cromer Academy. She lives in Mundesley and likes drawing, colouring and playing sports, especially football. Her favourite subjects are PE, performing arts and english.
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.
Our Steering Group has made a great start in establishing and looking at the priorities of the North Norfolk Youth Council. But they cannot do it alone. They need the help of young people across the district to join them in ensuring young people have a voice and are represented.
