Youth Combined Authority

Your city region needs you!

In 2022, the Mayor Steve Rotheram, established the Liverpool City Region’s first ever Youth Combined Authority (YCA).

Since then its members have been meeting online in small groups to discuss key issues affecting the Liverpool City Region. 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 from a youth perspective.

Some of the places on the Youth Combined Authority are currently vacant so if you’d like to be part of this influential group of young people, then we want to hear from you!  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 please contact [email protected] for more information.
