Bassetlaw District Council launched its drive to engage 13-18 year old students in their community in August 2015.

Councillor Sarah Farncombe, Young Person's Champion at Bassetlaw District Council (2019), said: ďBassetlaw Youth Council is a great opportunity to meet new friends and get your voice heard. You donít have to have knowledge of politics; you just have to be passionate about your area and the issues that affect you, from anything such as public transport to apprenticeships. If you donít speak up, you wonít get heard!Ē
