South Gloucestershire Youth Board

The South Gloucestershire Youth board is a group where young people are able to voice their opinions and make changes to things that affect the communities they live in.

Members will create young people projects based on local issues. Members are involved in consultations and shaping young people services. This is an opportunity to have your say!    

Members of the board are representative of all areas within South Gloucestershire and are aged between 11 – 18 years old.
