Southend Youth Council is open to any young person aged between 11-18 who goes to school, or lives, in the Southend borough.
Our main aim is to provide a platform for young people in the borough to have a say over how their borough is run. We meet to discuss the issues that affect us in Southend. Meetings follow a formalised agenda, which could include items such as a debate on current affairs and updates on our campaigns
We meet on the first Wednesday of every month from 5pm to 7pm, at the Civic Centre in Southend. Civic Centre address:
Southend Borough Council,
New members are always welcome. Just come along to a meeting and an application form can be filled out on the night.
The Youth Council is chaired by Youth Mayor Marco Mann and Deputy Youth Mayor Amy Burdett and supported by the Member of UK Youth Parliament for Southend, Alex Small.
If you would like to attend please come along to the next meeting; if you're coming by yourself we'll arrange for one of our experienced Youth Councillors to show you around, introduce you to the Youth Council and answer any questions.
If you want to stay up to date with the Southend Youth Council or talk to us about something that interests or concerns you in Southend then please email YouthMayor@Southend.gov.uk.
