Local Youth Forums across the Stroud district

Each of the 8 youth forums for Stroud District Council successfully empowered young people to tackle the issues that mattered to them in their communities.


Issues included:


Designing local youth centres in partnership with Town Councils.

Establishing plans for new skate-park, activities or youth cafes.

Assisting other agencies with community events, and fundraising activities.

Running campaigns highlighting key issues such as mental health

Working in partnership with the Police and Wardens to tackle traffic issues and speeding.

Organising visits of local MPs to speak to young people about their concerns.

Representing the voice of young people at Community Partnership meetings.

Linking with agencies and organisations in the local communities.

Developing consultation processes on behalf of young people and other agencies.


This Youth Forums met regularly in Pavillions, Parish and Town Council buildings, youth centres and other community buildings.


Each of the Youth Forums complemented the work of the School Councils as well as adding benefit to the Stroud District Youth Council through the particiaptive representation of local young people. Through these links we developed very effective links and partnerships with local schools;


  • Rednock School
  • KLB
  • Stroud College
  • Marling
  • Stroud High
  • Thomas Keeble
  • Maidenhill
  • Archway
  • Sir William Romney


Other successful outcomes of this project included developing links with Members of the House of Lords, Heathwatch, Police Crime Commissioner, and the Parliamentary Education Unit.


We made some real differences for young people in terms of voice, health, social impact, as well as the young peoples' own learning and development.
