Youth Council

South Lanarkshire Youth Council makes sure young people have a voice at local and national level.

The Youth Council is made up of young volunteers between the ages of 12 and 25. It provides them with  the opportunity to meet and possibly influence the way services are delivered and shaped, by for example the Council, police and the health board.

The South Lanarkshire Youth Strategy is the main focus for the work of the Youth Council.

Youth Councillors represent the views of young people on a range of current issues including:

  • health and wellbeing
  • youth friendly services
  • learning and working
  • rights
  • environment

Councillors also represent young people at national events, conferences and major youth forums such as the Scottish Youth Parliament.

If you have an issue you want to raise or if you would like to get involved, please contact the Youth Council:

Alternatively you can contact your Area Youth Council through Universal Connections.
