What is UK Youth Voice?

UK Youth Voice is the national steering group, made up of 25 young people from across the UK, which sits right at the heart of UK Youth. Every year young people from across the UK Youth network get involved in policy work, fundraising, conference organising, programme design and delivery, and campaigning on behalf of their peers. We strengthen links between youth organisations, build relationships with decision makers and inspire other young people to take action.

We’re currently looking for young people to represent Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, North West, North East, Yorkshire & Humber, South West, West Midlands, East Midlands and East.
