Young Experts Group Southend (YEGS)

YEGS is the new Looked After Children's Council, which encourages children that are involved with the Local Authority to be part of changes and development for Southend Borough Council.

The Young Experts Group - Southend are involved in consultation and development on a variety of services that are offered to children who are looked after.

We are planning to develop several different forums for children and young people to be part of within the coming months irrespective of age, gender, background or involvement and the YEGS have been instrumental in seeing this to fruition.

Have a look at our webpage here for more details!
