We are looking for children and young people aged 11-18 and disabled young people and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 11-24 to be part of our young people’s advisory groups.
The two advisory groups that are recruiting are the:
- YNCB Advisory Group
- Young Research Advisors
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we cannot meet up as groups as usual for the time being. However, we are looking for new members now and then will be resuming our face to face meetings soon!
YNCB Advisory Group
The YNCB Advisory Group is made up of children & young people (11-24) who get together to help decide and plan what work Young NCB does, including the issues it deals with and the activities and events it organises. Being a member of the Advisory Group is an excellent way of getting your voice heard and representing the views of other YNCB members.
Young Research Advisors
The YNCB Advisory Group is made up of children & young people (11-24) who get together to help the NCB Research Centre as well as other Research Centres from around the country to come up with ideas for surveys, test out interview questions, understand research findings, organise events, present at conferences and spread the word about the research findings through films and animations.
Both groups meet 6 times a year and you will need to be able to travel to London to share your experiences, give feedback and advice, and also talk to professionals about how to make positive changes to improved things for young people. Don’t worry if you don’t have these skills already, you’ll develop them in the group!
Please download the application form which has more information on it and explains how to apply.
We accept video applications or you can call us to arrange a time to talk to us.
You are welcome to apply for both groups, however you will only be able to join one group.
Please email all your applications to Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Monday 14 June 2021.
Joining Young NCB has enabled me to go to parliament, give evidence to a select committee and speak at conferences. There is no way I would have been able to do this without NCB, as they’ve taught me how to deliver training, presentations and speeches with ease. Each meeting or event I’m at, the feeling of warmth and acceptance radiates. I feel safe and my opinion is always listened to, and valued. I know I am able to change the world. I know that young people’s voices are heard, and make a difference.
