The young people's council is a youth voice group for care experienced young people in North Yorkshire.

The council meets on the first Wednesday of every month from 6pm to 8pm in York to discuss what improvements need to be made to the support we and others receive.

We meet directly with decision makers so they can hear what young people are saying. We also organise consultation days for looked after young people.

We have made  a pledge for younger children (pdf / 4 MB) a pledge for older children (pdf / 4 MB) and  a pledge for care leavers (pdf / 2 MB) - these are all the things young people have said they want from the adults who support them.
