Youth Parish Council
The Youth Parish Council is an elected body of young people of ages 11 to 18 whose role is to represent youth issues and needs in Martock.
The role of the Youth Parish Council is to:
- ensure a locally based group of young people is able to meet regularly as a mirror image of Martock Parish Council;
- enable access to a wider range of young people’s opinions and to act as a voice for all local young people;
- support the work of other Martock groups and delivery of the Martock Local Community Plan;
- manage and efficiently utilise the Youth Parish Council budget;
- provide a mechanism to enable issues of concern or praise be brought to the attention of local decision makers.
