Somerset Youth Forum is inviting all young people in Somerset aged 10-18 years (or up to 25 years with SEND) to a special session to discuss what young people need to have a happy and healthy childhood in Somerset.

The things that young people tell us will be shared with the Children, Young People and Families Board and will aid in the shaping of policies that will directly benefit young people in Somerset. Every participant will receive a letter and a gift voucher, and this time can be registered towards volunteering hours where applicable.

This event will be taking place on Wednesday 7th February, 5.30-7.00pm on Teams.

We will cover:
• What did 5,000 students in Somerset tell us?
• How can young people in Somerset vote for what’s important to them?
• You said, we did! Have adults responded to your priorities?

We’ll be looking at these questions and a whole lot more. If you know a young person who’d like to sign up for this event, please visit

If you’d like to get in contact with us or if you’d like to find out more about the event or Youth Forum send us an email at
