Sheffield Youth Council – the results are in!

Sheffield Youth Council

Voting for the Sheffield Youth Council Election took place in schools and youth clubs across Sheffield in early February. Young people from across Sheffield aged 11 to 21 were able to vote and almost 1,000 young people in the Northern area got involved and voted.

We now have two young people from the Northern Community Assembly area as part of the Sheffield Youth Council. They are  Jess Chittenden of Myers Grove School and Joe Lilley of Ecclesfield School.

The Sheffield Youth Council was designed by young people, for young people in 2007.  The Council represents people aged 11 to 21 (or 25 if they need extra support) and they act on issues that are important to young people.  The aim of the Youth Council is to bring together young peoples’ voices, views and opinions to influence political activities and to help change Sheffield to benefit young people.
