Southampton Youth Forum

Southampton youth forum


The Youth Forum Southampton is an open group for children and young people to join.

Becoming a member of the Youth Forum Southampton is a free and easy way to give your opinions on a wide range of local issues. It will enable you to influence how services are delivered, highlight issues you feel need to be reviewed, and help you shape public services for your community.

We want your views about anything the council are involved in, for example; schools, parks, transport, housing and social care to name but a few. We also want you to have your say on the council services you use directly.

By becoming a member, it is completely up to you how much or how little you would like to be involved. By signing up, we will inform you of the latest events, workshops and opportunities to have your say. Equally, if you have an idea such as a project, campaign or issue that you would like the Youth Forum to help with, then we want to hear from you!
