What is Haringey Youth Council?    

We, Haringey Youth Council, represent the united voice of all young people who live, work or study in the London Borough of Haringey and represent them on their behalf on both a local and national level. Our members are aged between 11-19 years and we are committed to raising awareness of issues that affect young people’s lives.

We support organisations and services that want to make a difference to young people, to continuously improve to ensure that the highest quality services are provided for them.

We work in partnership with others to create opportunities and develop young people into Young Leaders, who will serve as role models to their peers and have an impact on their community.

We work in partnership with Haringey Council and pledge to conduct ourselves in accordance with Council policies and are dedicated to promoting unity, equality and cohesion across the borough, placing Haringey amongst the best areas to grow up in.

Are you?

  • Aged between 11 and 19
  • Living, studying or working in Haringey
  • Seeing problems in or with your local community
  • Confident enough to do something about it

Then Haringey Youth Council could be the place for you!

How Does It Work?

We host our Big Meetings every 3 months for the community, where young people from all over Haringey can attend, enjoy some pizza and share their views on their experiences living in Haringey as well as take part in activities. We have a Cabinet team meeting happening every 2 weeks. The Cabinet team are the young people that lead the Youth Council and represent the 70,000 young people in Haringey by taking action on campaigns, consultations, and projects that they create throughout the year. To be able to join the Cabinet team, you have to either be elected by your school or during a Big Meeting.

What’s in it for me?

  • Being a voice for young people in Haringey
  • Representing your friends, schools and youth groups
  • Training
  • Meeting other young people from the borough
  • Gaining career and CV development opportunities
  • Attending trips and events all around the UK
  • Being exposed to new skills and experiences that could lead to growing in confidence
  • Oh, and did we mention Pizza every meeting...?    

How can I become a member?

Schools, colleges, youth groups and other youth settings can send two representatives and two substitutes to meetings and activities.

Most members have come from their school or youth group. So make contact and check whether you are represented. If not, put yourself forward!
