    So what exactly does the Youth Cabinet do?

    We campaign for things that you think are important, by going to the people who make the decisions and telling them what young people want. We talk to lots of different people, from the police, to bus companies and everyone in between. For example, between 2011 and 2013 we campaigned to improve local public transport options for young people. The result was the launch of the 3-iD Card, which offers travel on a number of bus services and discounts for young people in many high street stores.
