New newsletter encourages young people to have their say

A new newsletter has been produced to help young people have their say on issues affecting them.


The Inbox has been produced by Malvern Hills District Council and will be published on our website twice a year in July and January, as well as being sent to all secondary schools, independent schools and youth organisations across the district.


The newsletter aims to keep young people informed about work the council does that is relevant to them, as well as gain feedback from them on a variety of issues and highlight the importance of local democracy.


The latest issue includes opportunities to comment on what life is like as a young person living in the district, join the council’s new Youth Forum, apprenticeships, events and the chance to win one of 50 free seven day activity passes for Freedom Leisure’s sites in Malvern, Martley and Tenbury.


Cllr Caroline Palethorpe who has been involved in the project said: “Our young people have lots of great ideas and important views which we can use to help inform our decision-making but they are often the group we hear the least from.


“It’s vital we continue to find different ways of engaging with young people across the district and give them opportunities to be heard and valued. This newsletter is another stepping stone in that direction”.
