Are you aged between 11 to 17 years old and would like to get involved in our first Youth Council in the county?

Make Your Mark

Make Your Mark is the UK's biggest youth consultation.

Young people aged between 11 to 18 years old can vote on issues that are important to them and the top three issues nationally are debated in the House of Commons by the UK Youth Parliament

A record 15,699 votes were cast by young people in County Durham in 2019 and the main priorities were:

  • protect the environment
  • put an end to knife crime
  • improve mental health services

Local issues were also collected and have been shared with schools, colleges and Area Action Partnership groups.

Our Youth Council will be discussing some of these priorities as will a wide range of young people at our youth summits.

See Make Your Mark for more information.
