What is the Youth Cabinet?
The Youth Cabinet is a group of young people who have been chosen by you to represent your voice in East Sussex. The members of the Youth Cabinet represent the seven different areas, called 'constituencies', in East Sussex.

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.
Now it’s your turn - tell us what’s important to you and what you want changed! You can also find out more about the Youth Cabinet and how to stand for election. You can contact the Youth Cabinet:
