Preston Youth Council is made up of young people aged 12-19 from across Preston who are passionate and interested in making a difference in their community! They campaign on a range of issues, decided by the young people! Is there something you are particularly interested in, would you like to improve or change something? Come along!
The Youth Council are currently working on a Mental Health Campaign to improve young people's understanding and awareness of mental health issues, how to identify symptoms, what services are available and how to access support. Interested? Come along!
They are consulted on a range of issues by different organisations to find out what young people think – school nurses, trading standards (E-cigs, energy drinks) and more!
We have recently held elections and elected young people into the positions of Member of Youth Parliament for Preston, Chengkai Xie and Lancashire Youth Council Executives, Micah Bimson and Ayesha Safri.
Loads of opportunities and experiences to develop new skills, meet new people and improve your CV!
