Salisbury Youth Council 2012

About Youth Council

The Salisbury Youth Council is an opportunity for young people to make a difference in the community, to be involved in decision making and inform Council about issues that affect young people.

It's made up of 18 young people aged 14 - 25 who represent different schools, community groups, agencies or clubs in Salisbury. The Youth Council also has up to six mentors from key organisations in the community as well as three elected members.

Each year the Youth Council works on two main projects that are decided upon by the Youth Council members. These are things that they see as important for themselves and other young people. The project teams then plan, develop and implement activities around these ideas. They consult with other young people in the community and work with local businesses, community groups, youth agencies and organisations.

The Youth Council has worked on many projects including cyber safety, youth homelessness, safe partying, youth mental health, public art, safety at the Interchange, disability inclusion, anti-bullying,  domestic & family violence, young people & gambling and healthy eating.
