View from the Youth Council: You can apply to be next year’s MYP

PUBLISHED: 08:00 14 October 2018


Here at Redbridge Youth Council, we are aware of the growing number of young people that confront the struggle of mental health in their everyday lives.

It is a massive issue and is one of the main campaigns for our members of Youth Parliament.

To raise awareness of mental health and let you know you are not alone, we are holding a Peace Of Mind event at Redbridge Central Library on Monday, October 29 from 5.30-7.30pm for young people aged 11-18.

The event includes an exam stress workshop led by mental health professionals, speakers from various mental health charities and a chance to hear live poetry and a musical performance. Entry is free and tickets are available online at Eventbrite.

Redbridge Youth Election 2019 has now begun, meaning you are able to nominate yourself to become the 2019-2020 member of Youth Parliament (MYP) for Redbridge.

Being an MYP will enable you to make a difference to Redbridge by shining a spotlight on issues young people face in the borough. You will be given the opportunity to be the voice of Redbridge young people.

As an MYP, you will chair Redbridge Youth Council and lead a number of campaigns.

You are eligible to become a MYP and vote in the youth election in February if you live in or go to school in Redbridge and are between the ages of 11 and 18.

You will be interviewed by a panel of young people.
