Just a quick note to say how happy I am to have been appointed Youth Champion.  North Ayrshire’s young people are represented already through the youth council, there has been a lot of good work done in ensuring their voices are heard.  At the joint meeting of North Ayrshire’s cabinet and Youth executive I heard from some very impressive young people, confident and eloquent communicators  I look forward to working with them.  I also wish to try to engage with our young people who might not feel as comfortable in the council chambers debating with our education Director and the leader of the council! I intend to spend  some time over the next wee while meeting with youth groups and projects and listening and learning…….watch this space.
