Redbridge Youth Council

Get involved

Join the council and make a difference to your Borough. We want to give young people aged 11 to 19 in Redbridge a say on the issues that matter to them and a chance to have their voice heard. As a member of the Youth Council, you will get involved in a number of our campaigns. Some recent campaigns include raising awareness of mental health in schools, writing guidelines for schools about sexual harassment and looking at raising awareness about gang and knife culture. You do not have to be elected to be a member of the Youth Council, just come along.

We regularly meet with councillors and officers as well as representing young people on a variety of forums in Redbridge. The Youth Council meets on Mondays, during term time,  from 5pm to 7pm at Redbridge Town Hall in Ilford Committee Room 2 unless otherwise stated. We usually meet at the side entrance of the Town Hall from 5pm.

The next Redbridge Youth Council - Monday 17 December at 5pm. 

Make Your Mark 2018

Thank you to everyone who took part in Make Your Mark this year making it the most successful youth consultation both nationally and locally.  Over 1 million young people aged 11-18 in the UK had their say.  The top 5 issues were debated by the UK Youth Parliament in the House of Commons on 9 November and "End Knife Crime" was voted as the campaign for next year. To listen to the debate and hear Ali Raja, our Redbridge MYP speak at the centenary of the first world war, visit the parliamentlive.tv website.

Locally Redbridge achieved a turnout of 98% making us top in the UK for turnout.  27,124 young people from 25 schools and sites across the borough took part and we are 3rd overall for total turnout.  For more information read the full report.
