About Us

The Surrey Heath Youth Council (SHYC) is the voice of young people in Surrey Heath. Our purpose is to improve the local area for all young people and to bring their views and opinions to the attention of the borough. We consist of a dedicated group of young people aged 11-18 who aim to represent all the young people in Surrey Heath. We are youth led and act on issues relevant to young people in our community. You can find out about our award winning past projects below. You can contact us at our contact page.
