Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice, including help if you are struggling financially

Dorset Youth Council

You have the opportunity to voice your opinion and help make a difference to young people's rights and responsibilities. You can make new friends and represent other young people from your area. This is your chance to talk to decision-makers about issues that are important to you, decisions such as:

  • the environment
  • public transport
  • things for young people to do

By getting involved in local community projects and helping to make informed and positive decisions, this also promotes a positive view of young people across Dorset.

Dorset Youth Council

Giving Dorset's young people a loud voice on decisions that affect them.

Youth councillors develop campaigns, projects and events to support other young people to have their #YouthVoice. Working closely with decision makers, they work to make Dorset a happier, kinder and safer place to live, study and work for everyone.

If you are aged between 11 and 18 and live, work or study in Dorset, we'd love for you to be part of our #YouthVoice team!

Make new friends, develop life skills, have a bunch of fun and change your community for the better!
