THE British Youth Council has handed Kirklees Young Advisors an award for an ‘Inspiring Project’.
The team received the Youth on Board award for their work as peer advocates, communicating young people’s views on important issues to Kirklees Council decision makers.
Each gave their views and opinions on town planning, social enterprise, young people’s health issues and other topics.
They assessed existing services and made a short film aimed at removing barriers for young people, which has been shared with local health authorities.
Clr Peter O’Neil said: “This award is a testament to the fantastic effort these young people have to put into the projects.”
The Young Advisors are Robyn Winstanley, Mozzafar Hussain, Ayesha Malik, Adil Dokrat, Aamir and Abubaker Lunat.
