North Yorkshire Youth Voice Executive

In 2016, the Children’s Trust Board recognised the need for the creation of a North Yorkshire Voice Executive, to enable young people's representatives from various groups the opportunity to come together, have a voice and to work with each other and key decision makers, to make a positive difference to their lives and those of their peers.

In February 2017 the first meeting of the Youth Voice Executive took place with representatives from - Young Carers, LGBT+, School Councils, Flying High, Young People’s Council, Military Kids Clubs, Selby and Harrogate Youth Groups and members of the British Youth Parliament. Since the first meeting, the group have met several times, twice with decision makers.

In 2018 there is a plan to have more groups in North Yorkshire nominate representatives to be part of the Executive and are inviting schools and local youth groups to take part.

Mental Health Flow Chart

The Executive identified concerns about the limited availability of information and guidance for children and young people concerned about their mental health. Working together with the help and support of a number of organisations, a flow chart has been produced. With the help of Compass Reach copies have been distributed into schools since September 2018. Please see below a copy of the flow chart and click to download.
