Local democracy for young people

Young people's activities

Young people discussing consultation

Young peoples' views are integral to the work we do in Hinckley and Bosworth. We always aim to adapt to the changing priorities of young people in our borough, creating a safe and inviting environment.

Our priorities are inclusion, as well as working in partnership with schools and local organisations to support skill-building and emotional intelligence.

Working closely with our primary and secondary schools, we provide a variety of information to our schools about democracy. We work to ensure that we provide information on democracy to every corner of the borough and are inclusive to all schools.

We also run a Voice Forum for young people aged 11 to 19 who either live in the borough or attend a school/college in the borough. The forum is ideal for those who are passionate about local politics and making a difference to the community we live in. The meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month and provide young people with a place to express their views, giving them opportunities to make a difference and actively engage in their community.
