Fareham Youth Council are preparing for their AGM this week and looking forward to putting their queries and suggestions to their guest speaker Councillor Trevor Cartwright, MBE.
The Youth Council is led by 11-19 year olds, and serves to represent the views of children and young people living in the borough. The members share these views with the Council and present their suggestions on to improve the range and quality of activities and services available to their age group.
During the next meeting, on 16th July, the floor will be open to young council members and spectators to take part in a Q&A with Deputy Council Leader, Cllr Cartwright and put to him any questions or concerns they may have. He has said that 'these meetings are a great way for young people to influence local decisions, gain a political perspective and learn how councils operate. It is also a great way for young people to enhance their CV for college, university and future jobs.'
Young people between 11 and 19 are encouraged to come along to the meetings and have their say. Meetings take place on the first and second Wednesday of each month and are held in the Council Chamber at Fareham's Civic Offices.
