Sefton Young Advisors

Hosted by Sefton CVS | Sefton, Merseyside

Summary

Sefton Young Advisors work in partnership with community leaders and decision
makers to enable the voices of young people to be heard in community life. They
are trained and employed agents of social action. Their role is to guide and support
local organisations – local authorities, housing associations, CCGs, the Voluntary,
Community and Faith sector and other local partners on what it is like for a young
person to live, work, learn and play in their neighbourhood.

Sefton Young Advisors have a specialism in designing tailor-made activities that
utilise creative approaches to engage with children and young people and give them
a voice.

The Sefton Young Advisor team is made up of 21 young people from across the
Sefton borough. The team have worked regionally, nationally and internationally
and have won numerous local and national awards.
