The Highland Council has established High Life Highland as a Scottish company limited by garantee and registered in Scotland as a charity to deliver commnuity learning and leisure Services on its behalf, of which Youth Services are one of its activities.
The Highland Council, in partnership with High Life Highland and the Highland Community Planning Partnership is committed to creating increased opportunities for young people to become involved in their communities, in service development and in the decision making processes. The aim of the Highland Community Planning Partnership is to make Highland 'the very best part of Scotland in which to be young'.
A major initiative to come from our development work with young people is the Highland Youth Voice. The Youth Voice is an elected body of young people drawn from every area of Highland. The young people have a wide range of opportunities to 'have their say' and are also involved in taking forward their own agenda and tackling issues that are important to them. Further information on the Youth Voice can be found on their web site the link for which is located in External Links section.
The structure for Youth Work in Highlands includes a strategic team in Inverness and a network of Youth Developments Officers in the 29 Integrated Learning Communities, which are based around school groupings.
There is also now a full time Youth Convener, this is the fourth year of the post and is the first of its kind in Scotland and is based in the Youth Development Team of Highlife Highland and is a key representative of young people in Highland at various committee, staff and youth meetings. For further information see the Highland Youth Voice website under external links.
