Brighton Youth Action Group in full swing

by Brighton Council
New members of BYAG

BYAG stands for ‘Brighton Youth Action Group’ and in No­vember 2022, Council endorsed this group, demonstrating their commitment to having a youth voice in our municipality.

From the two meetings held so far, the group has attracted 15 local young people from across the municipality to come together and start sharing their thoughts on what is important for youth living and working in the Brighton municipality. Key issues that have been discussed include a lack of access to local mental health support and no fun things to do after school or on weekends.

The group, with support from Council’s community devel­opment officer and PCYC, are currently planning an event for Youth Week 2023 which is held from 1-7 May 2023.
