"The purpose of the Cambs Youth Panel is to offer young people of secondary education ages and above an insight into the workings of significant local decision making bodies and authorities.
In addition we seek to give a voice to young people and provide adult decision makers with a reliable and objective consultation panel that can help them to understand the world from the perspective of younger people.
We seek to open the doors of opportunity to young people - irrespective of background or defining characteristics - and we will always challenge inequality and the unfairness of disadvantage."
The resources that are used in support of young people - the budgets and the plans that are organised in our communities - should not move forward without the influence of thorough youth consultation.
We create a place of inclusion and diversity - where all young people are welcome to have their say, to participate and to feel valued in their efforts to improve local communities.
We seek to build bridges between communities and between the young and the old - promoting mutual understanding, empathy and acceptance.
