Stroud District Youth Council (SDYC)
Stroud District Youth Council represents the views of young people at a district level giving young people the opportunity to have a voice, to discuss relevant issues, engage with decision-makers and contribute to improving the lives of young people within their communities.
The Stroud District Youth Council (SDYC) was founded in 2000 by Stroud District Council in order to give a democratic voice to the young people (11 to 18 years) in the Stroud district who had an opinion but no means by which to express it. Since then huge numbers of young people and their communities have benefited from the work of SDYC, through members being positive active citizens in their respective roles. Today, district youth Councillors continue to act as representatives of their community, advocating the issues faced by young people in the district.
SDYC and the nine locality based youth forum groups represent the views of young people in the district; enabling them to collectively use their right to having a voice and being heard on relevant issues of concern. Subsequently they engage with decision-makers to influence change and help make a positive contribution to improving the lives of people and communities in which they represent.
For more information on SDYC and the local youth forum groups, please visit the Stroud Youth Voice website.
