Cultural Youth Forum

We are Leicestershire County Council’s Cultural Youth Forum, and our mission is to help make heritage, libraries and cultural activities more relevant, accessible and impactful to other young people!

Natural & Cultural Heritage

These projects will help inform future plans for Net Zero Leicestershire. All our activity promotes youth participation and voices in line with Leicestershire County Council’s ambition for a countywide Youth Charter.
