How the Youth Cabinet Works

Aims of Worcestershire Youth Cabinet

Worcestershire Youth Cabinet aims to act as a voice for the views and opinions of young people across Worcestershire. It does this by:

  • Identifying what young people think about various issues, what they feel is important and what they would like to see done.
  • Informing young people of the different services, groups and opportunities available to them.
  • Involving young people in decisions that affect them and in the development of services and activities that exist for them
  • Influencing others to encourage them to listen to young people and respond to their needs and wishes.
  • Campaigning on important issues to try to bring about change or improvements for the benefit of young people.
  • Promoting positive images of young people and highlighting the contribution they make to the community.
  • Supporting young people to be happy, healthy and safe and help them to achieve their full potential and have fun.

What is the Youth cabinet?

The Worcestershire Youth Cabinet is a group of elected young people (aged 11 to 18) who aim to provide all of the young people who live in Worcestershire with a voice – a voice that is heard and listened to by local, regional and national government, by providers of services for young people and by any other agencies who have an interest in the views and needs of young people.

As Cabinet members, we are dedicated to our role and regularly attend meetings and public forums to discuss the concerns and issues of our constituents. We also take on additional projects as often as we can to further improve the lives of all young people in Worcestershire.

We work alongside the 3 Worcestershire Members of Youth Parliament, who are involved in nation-wide projects to ensure that the voices of Worcestershire’s Young People can be heard at the highest levels of government.

We are committed to helping and representing you and your needs.

So if you have any issues that you think we can help you with or if there’s anything you think needs action to bring to the attention of decision makers and authorities, get in touch. Through these pages you can find out all about what we’re doing on your behalf, have your say by voting on a wide range of issues or contact us with your thoughts, ideas and questions.
