Young people in Saffron Walden are invited to take part in a youth consultation to have their say on life in the town.

The consultation, run by Saffron Walden Town Council and Saffron Walden Youth Outreach Project, asks 13 to 18-year-olds what it is like for young people living in the town, what young people can do outside of school and what they would like to have more of.

Answers will be used to shape where youth funds are spent in the future.

The survey can be found at

Under-13s can have their say too in a paper-based survey, which will require parental consent. Copies are available from the Tourist Information Centre.

Young people who take part in the survey are in with a chance to win a £25 voucher from a Saffron Walden retailer for their choice.


Chair of Saffron Walden Youth Outreach Project Mike Hibbs said: "I’m delighted that the charity and Saffron Walden Town Council are working together to find out what facilities young people would like in the town; too often their voice is not heard.

"The survey gives us the opportunity to find out what young people want in 2024."

The youth consultation is open until 5pm on Friday, March 8.
