SHAPE Youth Forum

The SHAPE Team are currently in the process of recruiting young people for the SHAPE Youth Forum. The forum meets bi-weekly on Thursdays at Oldbury Library from 6pm – 8pm.
The Forum provides the opportunity for young people to meet other young people from across the Borough, organise SHAPE Events and act as a consultation group for Sandwell Council services and partner agencies. They also act as a link into school councils. The forum has 2 elected Youth Commissioners.

This year we will be electing 2 members of Youth Parliament. If there are any young people aged 16 – 21 who would like to become a Youth Parliament member for Sandwell, then they must join SHAPE Youth Forum as a pre-requisite.

To be a member of forum the young people must be over the age of 13 and either study, live or work in Sandwell. If you any young people are interested in being part of forum then please ask them to contact
