The Youth Advisory Group is run by the British Youth Council, in partnership with the Department of Culture Media and Sport. It brings together young people from the UK Youth Parliament, national youth representative organisations, regional representation and those with specific lived experiences. It aims to engage with policy makers across UK Government and ensure youth voice is heard on key issues that impact young people’s lives.

The purpose of the Youth Advisory Group is to:

  • Have a representative group of young people who are themselves linked to geographical or lived experience communities and networks.

  • Ensure diverse and intersectional experiences of young people across the UK are represented in Government.

  • Support Government policy-making and implementation, including developing and providing feedback on proposed Government actions.
