A Quick Update

October 11, 2011

It is the time of month again when we can update you of the YC doings through youth eye. The YC has been busy as ever, Barry Thomson has been campaigning avidly to save the Hillylands Youth Centre in Mastrick, with petitions and information evenings. Hannah Bettsworth, Virag Erdi and Rebecca Lindsay have been hard at work with Drugs Action raising awareness and tackling the issues surrounding youth substance misuse.

The Youth Council is beginning an internal audit to tighten up procedure and ensure that we are running to the fullest capacity. This process is beginning with an Office Bearers meeting and will progress to our Public meeting later on this year.

The Agenda is being kept busy, the Integrated Children’s Services Strategy and Management Committees have been asking after the Hear My Voice Consultation which is still in progress - http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BTTP22D - please fill out the survey if you have time.

So, for another month, my best wishes and kindest regards
