Young people from across the North of England are working together to try and overcome the North/South divide and encourage more people to invest in Northern England as much as they do in Southern England. On Saturday 9th July, RBYC members attended a Northern Powerhouse event at Huddersfield University to share their views on transport, education, health services and youth voice across the North of England. After attending workshops and working on a plan of action, they fed back to key decision makers and discussed how they feel they should be involved when agreeing what should be on the curriculum, arranging transport services and funding across the NHS.
If you would like to be involved in this exciting project to develop the North of England, including Rochdale and Greater Manchester, come to our next RBYC meeting and join in! Also follow #nph and #NorthernPowerhouse on Twitter to keep up with the progress!
