Opportunity for young people to join new forums

Young people in Pocklington are being invited to help shape their communities by joining new youth forums.

The forums will give young people a say on issues affecting them, providing a platform to shape future services to meet their needs and commission new services. They will be made up of young people aged between 11 and 24.

There is a budget of £40,000, donated by the Dewhirst Charitable Trust, to commission future services in the East Riding.

The next local meeting will be held at Central Pock ‘Youthie’, 12 Union Street, Pocklington, 8 October, 7pm to 8.30pm.

For more information, contact the youth and family support service, yfs@eastriding.gov.uk or ring 01482 392824.
