Youth Combined Authority

Your city region needs you!

Last year, Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram established Liverpool City Region’s first ever Youth Combined Authority (YCA).

Over the past 12 months its members have been meeting online in small groups to discuss the five Mayoral priority areas: Economic Development, Employment and Skills, Energy and the Environment, Culture, and Transport.


They’ve also been meeting with other young people from across the city region and feeding their views back to the Combined Authority, in order to influence its policies and decisions.

As some people have moved on there are now a number of vacancies on the YCA so if you live in Halton, Knowsley, Sefton or St Helens, and are aged between 13 and 18 (or 13 and 25 if you have special educational needs and or a disability), then we want to hear from you!

What are the benefits?

There are lots of benefits to being a member of the Liverpool City Region Youth Combined Authority.

Some of the most important are:

  • You get to have your say over the big decisions that will shape the future of our area
  • As our group will be youth-led, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to shape how the group works and the issues it focuses on. If you’re part of a youth group or association already, it provides a platform to highlight some of the work you’ve been doing to a bigger audience
  • It gives you lots of opportunities to develop and enhance key life and job skills like communication, understanding people, problem solving, to name but a few.
  • The Liverpool City Region Youth Combined Authority will form part of the National Youth Combined Authority (NYCA), meaning you’ll have the chance to meet and work with young people from across England
  • You get the chance to make new friends and meet people with similar interests to you
  • Being a member of the group will enhance your CV
