Warwickshire Youth Council
The Council aims to represent the voice of young people in Warwickshire. You must be 11 – 18 and live or study in Warwickshire to be part of the youth council.
Each year, young people across Warwickshire vote for self-nominated young people to represent them. Those elected meet monthly at Shire Hall and have the responsibility of campaigning and liaising with bodies of power on behalf of young people.
Youth Council members have opportunities to have their say to local councillors and other leaders in the community. We are also a member of the British Youth Council.
Each area of Warwickshire also has a youth forum which represents young people at a more local level. What is it you want to change in your community?
We have forums in:
- North Warwickshire area – (waiting for information)
- Nuneaton & Bedworth area – (waiting for information)
- Rugby area - Instagram - @rugbyyouthforum (instagram) or email [email protected]
- Warwick area – email [email protected]
- Stratford area - Twitter - @ForumStratford, Instagram - @ForumStratford or email [email protected]
Young people are welcome to join these groups at any point in the year.

Detached Youth Work
Youth Workers are currently working out on the streets supporting Warwickshire Police to keep young people safe. This work is mainly taking place in the evenings in Warwickshire’s parks and town centres. Our workers will always have their Warwickshire County Council ID with them.
