Daigan’s role as DMYP will continue, as he will still be working hard towards delivering his pledge to the young people of Sutton whilst supporting the MYP and Sutton Youth Parliament. In addition, his new role will see him ensuring that the MYPs in and around London are supported in carrying out their BYC campaigns and duties.

Website Group Update

Our Website Focus Group had its first meeting on Wednesday 27th May. It was a really positive meeting and, as a result, we’re going to work on two main things:

  • Have more content written by young people for young people. We’re going to be sharing good news stories about the achievements of young people in Sutton. This will largely be completed by the Website Focus Group members. If you would like to join us, please send an email to isyp@sutton.gov.uk and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
  • Redesign the website. This will be a huge task, but we want a website that delivers great content and looks great at the same time.

Our next meeting will take place in the summer holidays and we will be posting more details about that as soon as we can. In the meantime, if you have any ideas or would like to be involved, please email us or talk to us on Twitter and Facebook. The social media pages are managed between 8.30am – 4.30pm on weekdays, so please be patient if you send us a message outside of these times.
