Make Your Mark Results
We have just finished our annual consultation, this year in collaboration with the UK Youth Parliament’s Make Your Mark Ballot and we have collated the views of over 1500 Surrey Heath young people. Coming out on top this year was Environment on both a national and local level so we will be issuing an update on our projects for this year shortly, targeting this issue. Knife Crime was also a concern for a large number of Surrey Heath young people when they were asked to vote on England-wide issues so we are also intending to partner with some already successful campaigns so Surrey Heath residents are well equipped to keep themselves and others out of harm. Below are a few infographics to highlight our findings.
Councillor Swap at Kings International College!
Councillor Colin Dougan attended Kings International College as part of Surrey Heath Youth Council’s Councillor Swap project. Councillor Dougan was able to get a feeling for everyday school life by attending two lessons with King’s Head Student before attending a lunch with the Student Leadership Team.
Meeting with Cllr Rodney Bates.
On Thursday 15th, we met with Cllr Rodney to discuss our upcoming age discrimination project - councillor swap! The project aims to bring together local young people and their borough councillors so our youth feel more comfortable in using their voice.
Happy Easter! We are still working on our discrimination project, and it is shaping out well. Our first meeting back will be on 25th April.
