West Norfolk Youth Advisory Board (YAB)

Young Commissioners, youth workers and professionals in Amsterdam, researching sex and relationship education.

Who are we?

We are young people who live or study in West Norfolk.

Each year we ask young people in West Norfolk 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.

Young Commissioners from West Norfolk and Breckland,

Young Commissioners

Members of the YAB are called Young Commissioners.

We meet regularly, and work together to make a positive difference in our communities.

Young Commissioners can take part in training, attend residentials, and have the opportunity to meet other young people and make new friends. There is never any cost, and food and transport is provided.

Covid-19

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 Bob and Roger are still on hand to support young people and plan for the future. We have moved our YAB meetings to Zoom. Get in touch if you’d like to join!
