Have Your Say

Listening to Young People
Your views now! On this page are a number of ways that young people can make their voices heard in the city:

Birmingham City Council has promised to listen to the views, ideas and opinions of young people, and is developing lots of ways of doing it. Young People have already identified issues such as homelessness, drugs, bullying, transport and leisure provision as some of the things they would like to discuss with politicians and other decision-makers.

Some issues may be local to your street or neighbourhood, some may affect all young people in Birmingham, some will even be globally important. Whichever it is, the Youth Service, along with others, is keen to hear your views and is developing various ways of involving you.
