We run various groups in Sheffield.  These groups give young residents aged 11– 25yrs a way to have their say and work on projects they care about. Here are some examples:

This group is for young people aged 13 to 24yrs with a Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND). It is for those who want to help make things better for young people with SEND.

Do you want to join our group? Contact us at:

youth.voice@sheffield.gov.uk      or call 07391 739 118 (Kerry)

The group allows young people aged 13yrs to 25yrs to give direct feedback to the police on issues that matter to them and others. It also gives the opportunity for joint campaigns to make Sheffield a safer place for all residents.

See further information in the SYP Independent Advisory Group Booklet and the application form (in case you want to join) in the Useful Information/Downloads section on the right hand side of this page. 

There are 7 of these groups across the city for young people aged 11 - 17yrs. Giving young people the opportunity to engage with decision makers and influence change in their local area.
