Spotlight on Anil from DDM

Hi my name is Anil, I am 17 and I am going to be 18 in a month but right now I am 17 and I am proud to announce that I was made chair by Enfield Youth Council which is an organisation for young people to have a voice in this city.

“The 2023 Enfield Youth Election appoints 20 young people as new members of the Enfield Youth Council (EYC) and two young people to the UK Youth Parliament to represent the views and needs of Enfield children and young people at national level.

Enfield Council’s Youth Services team reached out to young people in schools, youth clubs and local communities to encourage them to take part in the youth election process, either as candidates to stand in the election or to vote.

Nearly 3,000 young people from all over the borough registered to vote with a 33-strong candidate list.

The 20 elected local Youth Council members have a responsibility to the whole community, to champion the needs of all young people in the borough and to represent their views. They will ensure young people they serve have a voice in the community in improving services, and in positively influencing policy and key decisions the Council makes on local issues.”

We are so proud of Anil for his successful election and wish him the best in the Youth Council going forward.
