Remember to Vote in the Lambeth Youth Elections!

The Young Lambeth Coop (YLC) launched last summer, and now has 5,000 members with opportunities for them happening all the time. The YLC is the first organisation to give people who live, work, play or use services in Lambeth an opportunity to have a say in how funding for youth services should be spent. Anyone with an interest in improving the lives of young people in Lambeth should sign up to become a YLC member.

This year the Young Lambeth Coop (YLC) and the Lambeth Youth Council are running a joint election to continue to help raise the voices of young people in Lambeth. We want as many people as possible to vote for who you want to see steer the YLC into the next direction.
