You can have your say by voting for the people you want to represent you and the issues you want them to work on with Southwark Council and partner organisations.

You will decide on Southwark’s first-ever Youth Leader and Deputy Youth Leader as well as two representatives from your school and two representatives from your community area to be become SYP members.
