Sixth Form Pupil Elected Wandsworth's First Youth Mayor

Lower Sixth Form pupil, Millie Q, has been elected as Wandsworth's first Youth Mayor to represent young people across the borough. She was chosen by members of the Wandsworth Youth Council.

Millie commented: "Young people (0-18 years) represent 19.3% of Wandsworth’s population and I believe young people’s voices are needed to make a more inclusive, innovative and fairer borough. Policies about young people should not be made without us and I have seen this practice as a youth advisory board member for Safer London, a charity working with young Londoners who have been affected by violence and exploitation, as well as in parliamentary APPG meetings on youth affairs and My Life My Say meetings, that I attend. Both groups promote youth voice, and I hope to support this best practice, through my new role."

Congratulations on this remarkable achievement, Millie. We wish you all the best in your new role.
