Our next meeting will be at 9.30am on Tuesday 17th December 2019. You can follow live via @kirkdemocracy on twitter or via our live webcast.

At this meeting we will be discussing the “Growing a stronger youth council” report, with members of Kirklees Youth Council. The report shares what 1,700 children and young people in Kirklees said about having a voice, getting involved in community life, and how we can help them to grow the skills, confidence and connections they want, in the way that they want. We will also be looking at our new Role Profile for Kirklees Councillors, based on learning from officers, councillors and citizens, and a revised protocol for officers and councillors working together in Kirklees.
