East Sussex Youth Cabinet Members Take Their Seats

East Sussex Youth Cabinet Members
Take Their Seats

As voters go to the polls this month in local elections, young people in East Sussex took their seats earlier this year on a body representing their peers regarding the issues that affect them the most.

A total of 21 young people aged between 11 and 18 have been elected or co-opted to serve one-year term on the East Sussex Youth Cabinet, each representing their school, college or a youth group.

Councillor Sylvia Tidy, East Sussex County Council lead member for children and families, said: “It’s great to see so many young people taking part in the democratic process and making a real difference.”

One representative, Edward Peasgood from Uckfield College, says: “I am so passionate about so many of the topics and causes that the Youth Cabinet discusses and takes action on.”
