Bedford Borough Youth Cabinet

The Bedford Borough Youth Cabinet is made up of young people from every school (middle, upper, college, special) and from community groups and settings (hostels, children’s homes, in care) and they come together to influence decisions and change things for young people in their area and across Bedford Borough.


As a cabinet member they will represent the voices, views and opinions of young people in their ward and campaign for change. They have the power to influence at a local and Borough level based on collecting and representing the views of children and young people in their school or setting.

If you are a young person who has something to say, and are aged 11-18 (or up to 25 if you have additional needs), then the Youth Cabinet is perfect for you.

Run by young people, for young people, the Youth Cabinet works to make things better by listening to the key issues and working to bring about change.


The Youth Cabinet meet every month at 5pm to have training, plan projects and campaigns and share the views from their areas. All sessions are currently being held ‘virtually’ via video conferencing platforms.
