Youth Council to discuss mental health, refugees and the fire service

Three Rivers is welcoming young people to the Youth Council on Tuesday 4 October, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the Penn Chamber at Three Rivers House in Rickmansworth. The Youth Council is open to any young person aged 11-19 who lives or goes to school in the Three Rivers District, and is a great opportunity for young people in Three Rivers to have their say, discuss a wide range of topics, and really make a difference in their local community, while learning valuable decision making, debating, and organisational skills. Meetings are very friendly and relaxed, and new faces are always welcome.

  • On the agenda for the meeting will be the Three Rivers and Watford Refugee Partnership, where you can discover the work done to offer practical and emotional support in West Hertfordshire to asylum-seekers refugees.
  • Young people, who are interested in attending, can also find out more about the issues that young people find today, including mental health problems from Kooth, the NHS supported organisation.
  • Lastly, the Hertfordshire Fire Service, will talk about the work they do in the area and the courses they run for young people.

The Youth Council, which meets three times per year and each meeting, is chaired by one of the young attendees on a rotating basis and topics for discussion at each meeting are decided on by attendees. The Three Rivers District Council address: Penn Chamber, Three Rivers House, Northway, Rickmansworth, WD3 1RL. The Council building is fully wheelchair accessible and there is a hearing loop in Council Chamber
