Youth Working Group


  • To create a forum in which a healthy debate can occur on social and community issues across Ely which affect youth, seeking opinions and views.
  • To identify and develop ideas/projects that will benefit youth.
  • To recognise those who contribute to society as a whole.
  • To enhance public perception of youth as useful members of our society.

Structure of the Working Group

The Working Group consists of six councillors.

Representatives of youth organisations, other organisations with a youth commitment and businesses who have a social community objective will be invited to join.

It is proposed that the Working Group meets quarterly and sets its own agenda.  Apart from the administrative costs which the City Council will provide there will be no specific funding.  However, the Working Group will have the right to raise funds for projects which will enable the objectives to be achieved.
