About the Youth Voice Executive Committee

The Youth Voice Executive Committee is a space for young people aged 11-19, and up to 25 if they have a Special Educational Need or Disability, to speak about issues that are important for young people. Our meetings and activities give young people the opportunity to bring attention to topics that matter to young people in Bucks.

If you are interested in joining, please email your name, age, and a little bit about yourself to YouthVoiceBucks@buckinghamshire.gov.uk, or call, text or WhatsApp Krissie on 07825928053. We will then ask you to complete our Youth Voice Bucks registration form.

We also run a Winter and a Summer social each year to bond as a team and celebrate our work.
