The Bolsover District Young Voice meets formally five times a year. All secondary schools in the District (Tibshelf, Shirebrook, Bolsover, Frederick Gent, Heritage High and Stubbin Wood) elect or nominate six young people each to represent them as their Youth Councillors.

Young Voice was started as a pilot project and has gone from strength to strength and we award the Youth Council a budget to spend on projects it identifies each year.

The aims of the Youth Council are to:

  • Build on existing consultation with young people to inform improvements to service delivery;
  • Engage young people in Bolsover District in local democratic processes and institutions;
  • Provide schools with a learning tool to enhance the teaching of citizenship;
  • Develop a positive image of young people across the District.

 Ask Derbyshire is a website which provides information on all current, forthcoming and past consultations which we have run.

The Citizen's Panel consists of approximately 700 local residents who have agreed to give us their views and opinions on important local issues.
The Panel receive approximately four questionnaire surveys a year. These take on average 10 minutes each, can be sent via freepost of filled in online. Panel members can also choose to take part in consultation meetings, interviews and telephone surveys. The panel is one way that helps us identify key issues within the community, reduce unnecessary consultation and duplication, evaluate how we provide our services and help transform services in the future
The Panel receives regular feedback on any issues we have asked about in a newsletter called Viewpoint. You can view past Citizens Panel surveys by visiting Ask Derbyshire.
