Yorkshire West Young People’s Network
Connecting children and young people across the Yorkshire West District
What is YWYPN?
YWYPN, the Yorkshire West Young People’s Network, is an opportunity for children and young people across the District to have a voice at District level. Anyone aged 11-23 can take part in the events.
Our most recent event was a weekend away in April 2017 at Carlton Lodge near Thirsk.
All our events are planned by the Shaper Group which is made up of young people from across the District plus five nominated adults. Each Circuit is invited to have two reps aged 11-23 to be part of the Shaper Group. The Shaper Group meets 3-4 times a year to plan the events.
District Youth Co-ordinator
Laura Tunnacliffe is the District Youth Work Co-ordinator. This role involves working with the Shaper Group to plan and organise the youth events, meeting with youth groups to build links across the District and arranging networking opportunities for youth and children's workers across the District.
