Leith Youth Forum - Have Your Say
The Local Youth Forum is a chance for you to have your say
on issues that affect your life or your area.
Debates, discussions and actions at Youth Forums can affect
decisions made at a local level, all the way up to the highest
level in government.
You can make a difference!
We look at all sorts of 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
You can choose how your Youth Forum works, the issues you deal
with and even the name. We work closely with the 12 Neighbourhood
Partnerships set up across the city. 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
We have links with other young people's organisations
too. They include:
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.
