“Do you want to make a difference and improve the lives of young people in Sandwell?”
Join SHAPE Youth Forum and start making a change!
The SHAPE Youth Forum is an integral part of the Sandwell’s child’s voice initiative, the SHAPE Programme. It is a valuable tool to involve young people in continuing development of the borough of Sandwell. Members provide a voice for young people across Sandwell and have been consistently used as a consultative body for various initiatives concerning young people.
If you have a keen interest in politics and would like to have your voice heard locally and nationally, then joining SHAPE Youth Forum is a great opportunity for you to represent your community.
SHAPE Youth Forum has now been in operation for 5 years and emerged from the former Youth Parliament in Sandwell.
The Forum meets fortnightly from 6pm-8pm on Thursdays (refreshments provided). We request that all members of SHAPE Youth Forum commit to attending at least one meeting a month. For any additional SHAPE events and activites on different dates Forum members will be notified in advance.
Currently forum meetings take place at Sandwell Council House, B69 3DB from 6.30pm to 8pm.
The Forum is supported by:
Neesha Patel – SHAPE Project Manager
Asha Lawrence – SHAPE Project Support Officer
Emily Rees-Woodhall – Young People’s Digital Communications Officer
Tariq Karim – Youth Services Manager

“I initially joined the forum in January 2019 in pursuit of the Youth Parliament role. Fast forward a few years and I have not only been given the opportunity to pursue what I had originally wanted to achieve; I have also been fortunate enough to receive a plethora of other opportunities to represent my community and have my voice heard. I take great pride in being Chair, as the forum is the hub of opportunity and prosperity for young people in Sandwell.”
