Local Work


Although we meet in Chelmsford for our sittings, we are involved in many other projects around Essex to help make the world a better place to be. We are currently doing the following projects in these areas:


Braintree, Chelmsford, Maldon

In Mid Essex we are currently contacting our MP’s, Councillors and Schools to inform them of who we are as the Young Essex Assembly and to tell them that we are available for discussion.

In North, we have established 3 working groups which include Mental Health & Wellbeing, Libraries, Transport and Knife Crime. The YEA members are currently consulting with their constituencies about these issues.

In the West area, the young people have mapped what Youth Councils they are involved in and are also in contact with their District Youth Councillors raising their YEA profile in that area.
