When was the last time someone in power asked for your opinion and actually wanted it?

People in power don’t always understand what young people think and need but the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) wants to.

We are looking for a board of change-makers to advise and challenge on its priorities, policies and decision-making.

This is your chance to influence how decisions are made about you, your community and future generations.

The Young Combined Authority (YCA) is a governance opportunity and development programme for those who want their opinions heard and are passionate about making changes for young people in the West Midlands. The board will be built by young people for young people.
