Changes to Youth Council arrangements
There is an expanding age range of children and young people attending the Youth Council. In order to accommodate the different issues and views that affect members, the meetings now start at 6pm and follow the normal procedure until 8pm.
After 8pm, those members age 16 plus will be invited to stay for a further 30 minutes to address any matters that concern them. This is to ensure that 'older' young people are given the opportunity to be heard.
