Redbridge Youth Council
Join the council and make a difference to your Borough
- fed up with feeling like there's nothing for young people to do?
- think nobody ever listens to your views?
- wish you had more control over what happens in Redbridge?
- aged between 11 and 19 and living and/or studying in Redbridge?
Then come and join the Redbridge Youth Council.
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.
Redbridge Youth Council is now on a summer break and we will re-start on Monday 17 September at 5pm.
We have lots of activities over the summer including our Healthy Relationship Workshop on Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 July at Hainault Youth Centre, 116 Huntsman Road, Hainault. The free 2 day workshop uses drama and interactive workshops to look at what makes a healthy relationship, how to increase your self-confidence and be aware of human rights issues and what consent means. The workshop is for 11- 19 year olds and will end in you putting on a small drama production to your fellow participants.
The free tickets are available on Eventbrite.
