About us

We are a group of 11-18 year olds who live within the East Grinstead area of Mid Sussex. We take an active role in our community in order to make a difference within East Grinstead.

We undertake various fundraising ventures to support local charities. We are a forum that represents the views of young people in East Grinstead.

We create opportunities for young people to achieve and to be involved in influencing local policies and attitudes.

I am 15 and I’m a student. I play the violin and I love the film V for Vendetta. My inspiration is Leonardo Da Vinci.

I'm very out going and also up for a challenge. I'm doing this to make people aware that the youth council is here to help.
