What do we do?

Some of the things that we do at Blackpool Youth Council

Give young people a voice

We ensure that every young person, aged 11 to 18, no matter their ethnic or social background can have their voice heard; allowing young people to have the opportunity to have their say and make informed decisions on key issues affecting them.

Youth Fund

We offer an opportunity for young people (11-25) to apply for funding to purchase items that would benefit them in gaining employment, training, education or volunteering.

Participation

Encouraging young people to involve themselves in the Blackpool community and make a positive change
