Youth Council

Who we are

Barnsley Youth Councillors represent the young people within their schools and campaign on the issues that matter to young people the most. They run drop-in sessions in their areas where you can raise issues and find out more.

The youth councillors are elected every two years in February. Anyone aged 13 and above can stand for election in their school or college. All young people aged 11 to 19 can vote in the election and get involved in campaigns or attend drop-ins.

At the moment, the youth councillors are:

  • Alyssa Butler - Chair of local committee, deputy MYP,  deputy chair of National campaigns committee
  • Abigail Finnigan - Secretary for public profile and monitoring and policy committee
  • Brandon Green - MYP, chair of regional committee and newly appointed UKYP PG
