A voice for young people

Story Farhan Ahmed and Hasseena Hussain The Youth Council Burngreave would like more young people to take the opportunity to join this month. The main purpose of this group is to represent other youths in the area for positive change.

Previous activities in the last two years have included

  • A two day residential, which was a chance for Youth Councillors and youngsters from the community to interact and share ideas. With activities such as abseiling and rock climbing as well as drawing together an agenda for the Youth Council.

  • One of our biggest achievements as Youth Councillors was saving the Pavilion youth centre from closure.

  • Burngreave Youth Council also have the responsibility of helping with funding boards and expressing their views on vital decisions that may affect the local community.

  • At the BCAF quarterly forum in May we organised and

planned a protest to show the public how our views were not heard.
