Making changes by young people for young people in Broadland

Who are we?

We are young people who live or study in Broadland, Norfolk.

Each year we ask young people in Broadland about the issues that matter to them.

We then take action through campaigning, lobbying, advocacy, hosting events and commissioning services.

We work with adult professionals in our community to ensure that young people have a say in decisions that affect them.

Get involved!

Want to make a difference?

The YAB is open to all young people aged 11-19 (up to 25 with a disability) who live or study in Broadland.

Young Commissioners

Members of the YAB are called Young Commissioners.

We meet during lunchtimes and after school, and Young Commissioners from all over Broadland meet once a fortnight. We also run a regular campaign group.

Young Commissioners can to take part in free training and residentials, meet other young people, and make a positive difference in their community.

Covid-19

Current government guidance is to delay the spread of COVID-19 by avoiding non-essential travel & social contact. Until further notice, no face to face YAB groups & events will be taking place. We believe this is the best decision to keep everyone safe.

Youth workers Emma and Rose are still on hand to support young people and plan for the future. We have moved our YAB meetings and campaign group to Zoom. Get in touch if you'd like to join!
