Youth Council Priorities Poster 2015 to 2016

Since being elected, members of the Isle of Wight Youth Council have concentrated on deciding what  their priorities will be for the current term of office.

The priorities will be the focus of their work, when representing the views of young people on the Island, to the Isle of Wight Council and the wider community.

When standing for the Youth Council, members wrote manifesto’s (these can be viewed under the members tab above), which spoke of issues important to them, other young people and their communities.

By sharing these issues and consulting with others, the Youth Council have agreed the following topics will be areas of priority and a focus for them.

If you wish to contact the Youth Council on any of these priorities, please use the contact tab above.
