Youth Forums

Derbyshire County Council and High Peak CVS are working together to Support Young People.  

Working in Partnership, Derbyshire County Council and High Peak CVS are setting up a local Youth Forum to give young people the opportunity to voice their opinions of what is needed across the High Peak. The forums will work with those between the ages of 11 and 18 to:

  • Hear the Voice of Young People living in the High Peak.
  • Establish a Youth led platform. Empowering young people to be involved in the running and shape of the Youth Forum going forward. 
  • Provide young people with training and development opportunities, presentation skills, chairing meetings, active listening, critical thinking etc.  
  • Enable Young people to bring fresh ideas, approach and have an influence on new projects built for young people in the community.
  • Develop an effective channel for capturing young people’s views on how money is spent locally for young people’s activities.
  • Provide a safe space for young people outside the school environment to talk about issues that matter to them and ensure that a clear pathway for issues raised leads to positive, constructive outcomes and actions. 
  • Provide Youth Forum sessions to include training, workshop sessions, outside speakers to build engagement and knowledge within the Forum.
  • Support and complement the work of the High Peak CVS Youth Network colleagues. 

Provide 2-way communications enabling young people to provide feedback to colleagues on projects such as communication strategy, help shape how community groups communicate with young people. Enable colleagues to consult with young people and help shape new initiatives and ways of working especially moving through and out of the current lockdown situation
