The Doncaster Youth Council 2017

On 18th September, our Post 16 students met with Debbie Burton, Partnership and Engagement Officer from Doncaster Council.  Debbie led a presentation on The Doncaster Youth Council

The Youth Council are a diverse group of local young people (aged 11-19) who want to ensure the voices of the young people in Doncaster are heard.  They provide a forum for young people to have a voice on the things that matter, highlighting issues that affect young people.  The Youth Council represent and communicate the views of young people to the decision makers and the wider community

This year a total of 5,603 individual young people participated in the Make Your Mark (MYM) vote. This equates to 19.49% of the 11-18 population age, Doncaster exceeded the national average turnout which was 16.60%. The two areas of the borough with the highest percentage turn out rate was Central and the South areas. The top 3 priorities for 2016 identified by young people across Doncaster are:

  • Transport - Make public transport cheaper, better and more accessible for all
  • Curriculum for Life - Schools should cover topics including finance, sex and relationships and politics in the curriculum
  • First Aid Training for all young people

The two national campaigns voted for at the House of Commons sitting are: Votes at 16 and Curriculum for Life

Want to make a difference? Want to have your say?  Want to get the voices of young people heard?  Then become a Youth Councillor!  For further information, contact Debbie on 01302 862493 or email the team on Youth.Council@doncaster.gov.uk
