The British Youth Council is celebrating its 70th Anniversary, marking decades of its efforts to create social and political change for young people. Throughout the year, we will not only celebrate the stories of those who have been part of the youth voice movement, we’ll also celebrate the young people who continue to champion our vision for a better world.
This week is small charities week and we at the British Youth Council are delighted to be involved with this wonderful initiative that celebrates small charities like us. For small charities like the British Youth Council your support really does make an enormous difference. Whether you make a donation, sign up for a challenge event
