Young People's Office


News | Community

The Young People’s Office, which is part of Peterborough City Council’s youth service, has moved to a new home in Midgate House, Peterborough.

The support service was set up to give young people in Peterborough a voice and the opportunity to get involved in the decision-making process.


The Young People’s Office runs ‘Youth Consultation Peterborough’ which encourages young people aged between 13 and 19 to get involved in different projects within the local community and express their views.

The focus is on building bridges between young people and the decision-makers, building young people’s confidence and communication skills and encouraging them to get actively involved in shaping the future of the city.

Councillor Matthew Dalton, spokesman for young people said: “The Young People’s Office gives young people a chance to have their say about issues that affect them. It has already gained national recognition and I hope more young people will take the opportunity to support it.”

Peter Rouncefield, a youth worker for Peterborough City Council’s youth service, who runs the Young People’s Office with youth worker Alice Johnson, said: “The Young People's Office has developed a steady platform from which young people's views can be heard and our website gives young people opportunities to have their say and review the services provided for and the organisations that work with young people in the area.”

To find out more about the Young People’s Office call 01733 317493, visit www.ycp.info  or call in to the office on the third floor of Midgate House from Wednesday to Friday between 10am and 5pm.
