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 NHS Blood and Transplant, where you can find out more about the services it provides to the NHS, including supplying enough safe blood, tissues and solid organs to hospitals and discussing if everyone be considered organ donors unless they ‘opt-out’. Young people, who are interested in attending, can also listen to Youth Connexions personal advisers discussing careers education on work experience apprenticeships, university and the job market. Lastly, two organisations that were granted money from the Youth Council in February, which comprises of Three Rivers West Children’s Centre and St. John Ambulance – Rickmansworth Cadets and Badgers, will show how the grant money has been put to good use. 

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.

To be added to the mailing list, receive details of future meetings, help with transport or any other information, young people can contact 01923 776611 or
