We are piloting Youth Advisory Boards in Fenland and East Cambs, working with key partners and young people to operate a strategic partnership that commissions services and sustainable activities. These will strengthen community cohesion and increase local community capacity to meet the needs of young people, especially for the more vulnerable.
Each YAB will have £22,000 to spend on commissioning and campaigning for the year. The members of our Youth Advisory Boards will come from our Community Ambassadors, they will meet at least once a month and attend a variety of training sessions.
The full Youth Advisory Board meetings for Fenland will take place at Fenland District Council's offices as follows:
- Monday 18th November 4pm - 6pm
- Monday 27th January 4pm - 6pm
- Monday 2nd March 4pm - 6pm
- Monday 4th May 4pm - 6pm
- Monday 6th July 4pm - 6pm
