Searching for young volunteers in SK9

Councils in SK9 are setting up a panel of young people in the area to support and promote youth activities. 


Cllr Ruth McNulty (Wilmslow Town Council) said “We are looking for young people aged between 13 and 19 to form a team who will actively identify and fund leisure activities for their age group. We want the youth of the town to point us towards projects to help other young people. We have already earmarked funding but we need their guidance to place this money where it will best be used.”

Cllr Hilary Shepherd (Wilmslow Town Council) explained that “our intention is to give this panel the freedom to decide how they wish to organise and promote their group and how they can best help other young people in the area. The panel will ideally include young people from all corners of SK9.”

The panel will be recruited in May and June and will benefit from some training. Membership will qualify for a Duke of Edinburgh’s award accreditation.

If you would like to be part of the young peoples’ voice in the area or if you have any queries please e mail youthgroupsk9@cheshireeast.gov.uk with your details
