Youth Advisory Board

Dear Marlborough Parish Councils,

At last week’s Marlborough Area Board meeting, Councillor Jemima Milton was appointed to represent the Area Board at the new Marlborough Youth Advisory Group. As well as a rep from the area board, we are also looking for someone to represent town and parish councils within the community area at this meeting.

Youth Advisory Groups have been set up by Wiltshire’s Integrated Youth Service and are to provide an opportunity that:

· Give young people the chance to have a REAL say about services in their local area.

· Enable young people to shape services, particularly youth services funded by the Council in a way that meets their needs.

· Promote all the opportunities and services which are available to young people in their local area.

· Build on young people’s strengths e.g. confidence and public speaking skills.

More details about YAGs and what they will do in the community area are in the attached document. I would very much appreciate it if you could raise this matter with your town and parish councillors and find out if anyone is interested in this appointment.

Many thanks,



Community Area Manager, Marlborough
