Have your say: BLOC Youth Council

The Youth Council aims to make BLOC a programme designed by and for young people. It holds board meetings and skills building sessions monthly.

Since the first meeting our diaries have been filled with important dates. We’ve developed the process and planned library events. It’s been an eye-opening process so far, and I look forward to much more that’s on its way! — Youth Council board member
