Youth Council aims
Training and support for Youth Councillors is provided by the Youth Learning Service and its Universal Connections Youth Participation Network.
The Youth Council aims to:
- work in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council to promote the voice of young people
- work in partnership with other organisations such as local colleges, transport managers and the police to influence their youth policies
- consult with a wide range of youth groups/organisations such as Changing Places, youth forums, Pupil Councils, uniformed youth groups and additional support needs groups
- obtain their views on youth issues and improve the wider community perception of young people through the positive promotion of their achievements
