Map Of NorthumberlandWelcome to Northumberland Young Advisors webpage!
Northumberland YA’s are aged between 15 and 18, who show community leaders and decision makers how to engage young people in community life, local decision making and improving services.

YA’s are trained young consultants who offer advice and guidance to local authorities, housing associations and other local partners on behalf of the young community to influence change.

  1. We help organisations 'youth proof' their practices, policies, strategies and commissioning.

  2. We help you understand how to attract and maintain the interests of young people.

  3. We speak out for young people, making sure their thoughts and feelings are considered in decisions that affect them.

  4. We can help you innovate to solve local challenges bringing power and decision making into local communities.

  5. We will help deliver research and consultations to ensure your findings relate to the needs of young people.

  6. We engage directly with other young people to get them involved in neighbourhood improvements.
