Youth Council - Your Voice

Closes 22 Aug 2021

Opened 14 Jul 2021

Overview

The Youth Council launched in January 2020 following the Council’s Youth Review. One of the key findings outlined that “It’s really important that young people are listened to and have a meaningful role in shaping services that affect them”.

Members of the Youth Council have shared that: “Our role is to provide representation for all young people in the community and to present recommendations and guidance on youth interests, views and issues to Council decision-makers.

We’re really appreciative of the opportunity to help make the borough a better place and look forward to representing young people’s voices.

To thank you for sharing your views, £500 worth of vouchers will be given away for those who complete the survey. You can enter the prize draw at the end of the consultation to win a £20 voucher at a shop of your choosing. Thanks for taking part!”

The survey should take around 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

This survey is open to:

- Young People aged 11 to 19 who live or study in the borough.

- Young people aged up to 25 if you have a learning difficulty or disability, or are in care or a care leaver.

Why we are consulting

The RBKC Youth Council would like to hear from you! As we are entering the recovery phase of the pandemic it is crucial that we identify young people’s needs.

Information provided will give us a wider understanding of youth needs across the borough, help to shape our future priorities for the year ahead and tell us what needs to be done to make a positive impact on young people’s lives.

Results and recommendations will be feedback to participants and council leads. A 'You Said, We Did' exercise and full report will be published on our Youth Council page of the council website as well as the Consultation Hub.

If you have any enquiries or need to request the consultation in an alternative format (e.g. a printed copy or a copy translated into another language), please email youthparticipation@rbkc.gov.uk or call 07875 878 859.
