The Little Hearts Matter Youth Forum is made up of young members and their siblings aged 11-24, and they help LHM decide what services and support we should be offering our Zippers.
You may have heard about our past youth councils which were great, we are however looking for the future and wanted to find a way to hear the voices of more of our youth members and their siblings. Hence the new YOUTH FORUM!
Every 6 months LHM will be inviting 5 members of all ages and locations to be part of the youth forum for a term of 6 months. Even though this is by invitation you are more than welcome to volunteer and we can see what we can do.
The Youth Forum will have regular meetings on Skype, as well as meeting up during the Open Day to chat to young members and plan what they’d like to do for their term of 6 months. The Youth Forum will continue to do a lot of interesting and exciting things like the youth council did; such as going to the Houses of Parliament, going on the radio, creating an information DVD about life with half a heart and ensuring that they believe their peers (the youth members) are represented and supported in the correct way!
