Cheshire East Council is opening its doors to children and young people as part of the Children’s Commissioner’s (Dr Maggie Atkinson) Takeover Day.
On November 23, young people will get the chance to shadow senior officers for a day and see for themselves what is involved in the day-to-day running of a local authority and partner agencies.
Children will benefit from experiencing the world of work and making their voices heard, while staff and the organisations will gain a fresh perspective.
It is hoped that this will help break down barriers between generations and encourage young people to become more active in their local communities.
The scheme is open to anyone aged 13 – 19 years and some young people will get the opportunity to support the running of youth hubs in Macclesfield and Crewe.
Young people wanting to get involved can pick up a form from their career adviser at school, from the Youth Support Centre in Crewe (23-25 Market Street), or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
