Who are the Bassetlaw Youth Council?

Bassetlaw Youth Council is made up of young people (11-19 years) from across the whole of Bassetlaw who want to influence local decisions about the District. They are passionate about the place where they live and want to ensure that young people’s views are heard.

The Youth Council provides opportunities to raise awareness about the issues that matter to young people and campaign at a local and national level. Work on projects that make a difference to their communities these include working on a health film, tackling litter problems, sharing digital skills with older people and working on an anti-bullying campaign.

The Youth Council also provides opportunities to volunteer, develop a range of skills and to address a wide range of different people from across the sectors and gain an insight into how local democracy and services work.
