Youth Engagement Policy Commission

Get in touch

Glasgow City Council has established a Youth Engagement Commission to help the Council and other partner agencies identify actions that can improve opportunities and outcomes for young people.

Call for Evidence

The Youth Engagement Policy Commission would like to ask for your views, and any available evidence that will help the Commission to better understand the issues around the three areas the Commission wishes to address:

  • Barriers that young people face in engaging with the City Council, other public agencies and in participating in the life of our city

  • Priority issues for young people, that they would wish to engage on

  • Approaches to help improve youth engagement

 

Thank you very much for all your contributions, the Call for Evidence has now closed and the Commission are considering the findings, and planning the next steps.

Aims

In particular the Commission aims to

  • Examine the barriers that young people face in engaging with the city council, other public agencies and in participating in the life of our city
