Stockton Youth Assembly

youth direction

The newly formed Stockton Youth Assembly (SYA) has been established to ensure young people are consulted, that their voices are heard and to help the Council work with young people directly to shape local services.

The work of the Stockton Youth Assembly provides a voice to young people aged 11 -19 (aged up to 25 if a young person has a learning difficulty and/or disability).

The Stockton Youth Assembly is made up of representatives from a wide range of existing youth voice forums. The Youth Assembly meets every other month with an action packed agenda in a formal meeting. In between the formal meetings the group have opportunities to engage in team building, positive activities and development sessions which are provided by Youth Direction’s Targeted Youth Support.

The Stockton Youth Assembly is chaired by Member of Youth Parliment Jess Hugill and Kushan Bhardwaj is the Deputy MYP.

Visit the Youth Parliament page for further information.
