Project Description

DEANNA MILLER

Age 14, Doncaster

I am a Youth Councillor and my role is make sure the voices, opinions, and concerns of young people in my area have all been captured and listened to. I had a fear of public speaking but, through social action, have gained confidence during public events to speak up for my peers.

I have been heavily involved with the production of the Doncaster Children and Young People’s Plan. After consulting young people during its design, I am now part of a task group planning a Youth Summit to monitor progress against the issues identified by young people.
