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.
The next Redbridge Youth Council: Monday 9 September at 5pm.
