Youth Forum - Have your Say

Local Youth Forums in Edinburgh

Local Youth Forums are a chance for you to have your say on issues that affect your life. We work closely with the 12 Neighbourhood Partnerships set up across the city, so we can affect decisions made at a local level, all the way up to the highest level in government. 

You can choose how your Youth Forum works, the issues you deal with and even the name.

You can make a difference!

We look at all sorts of local issues including:

  • Local transport such as buses and trams
  • Parks and Graffiti
  • Schools and after school activities
  • Healthy eating and smoking
  • Crime
  • Sports facilities and clubs

The Neighbourhood Partnerships work to improve the quality of life in each area, so the opinions and suggestions made at Local Youth Forms are important to them.

We also make links with other organisations representing young people. They include:

  • Pupil/student councils
  • Scottish Youth Parliament
  • Edinburgh Youth Council

You could attend meetings with these groups to tell them about your opinions and solutions to the issues that you feel are important. The forums are supported by youth workers from your local community learning and development team.

Get involved and have your say…
