About us

Hi! It’s Beth here

from the participation team. I’m here to explain to you all the work we are doing in supporting young people to be heard in Middlesbrough. There are two members of our team: Beth Bradshaw and Laurie Hunter. We all work together to make sure that every young person in Middlesbrough knows they matter.

About us

We will be open and honest.

We want you to grow up in a town that supports you with whatever you may need, that respects your thoughts and feelings and puts you all first!

Our aim is to find out young people’s views, ideas and opinions about the town, because we want to know what Middlesbrough Council can do to support young people to thrive.

Sign up to our Youth Council!

About us

We are always willing to learn from you.

You are the future of Middlesbrough and we need you to make this town even greater than it is! We know all young people are different and we want to know how we can get things right for everyone. Which is why we are always looking for new and exciting ways to work.

Our team host a number of groups for children and young people from all backgrounds, that we would love for you to be involved in! We have fun but we also work on lots of important projects.

How can I join a youth group?

There are lots of different groups around Middlesbrough for young people to be involved in! One of the groups is called Linx, and they run activities for young people almost every day! You can find out more in their website below.
