The Welwyn Hatfield Borough Youth Council aims to makes a positive difference in our community and raise awareness about issues that matter to young people.

We work in partnership with many borough and county wide youth services to ensure young people within Welwyn Hatfield have access to the services and support they need. An important part of this is supporting the borough's Youth Council.


The Welwyn Hatfield Youth Council is made up of like minded individuals aged 11-19 who really want to make a positive difference in our community.

Any young person aged 11-19, who lives, works or is educated in Welwyn Hatfield can join the Youth Council and take part in the bi-weekly meetings.

Chair: Beth Makowski

Vice Chair: Laura Wells
