Manchester Youth Council


MYC is a group of young people who are passionate about making a difference in Manchester.


They meet weekly to discuss issues affecting young people and create campaigns to make life better for children in Manchester. They meet with and speak to key decision makers in the council and across the city.  


If you live in Manchester and are aged 11-17 (or up to 25 years old with additional support needs) join today.




The Change Makers are a growing group of young people with SEND who represent and gather the views of other young people. They help to shape the Local Offer (that is, all the services that are on offer across the city for children and young people with SEND and their families.) New members are always welcome.

Young Carers


If you’re a child or young person who helps take care of someone at home, there’s lots of support on offer for you in Manchester, and ways for you to have your say. Many schools and colleges now have their own young carers support groups – where young carers can get together with their peers and chat about what could help make things better for them.
