Students across the borough are being encouraged to grasp a “life-changing opportunity” by becoming an Islington youth councillor.

If you are aged between 13 and 17, live or go to school in Islington, or are looked after by the council, you can nominate yourself to the role.

Islington youth mayor, Diana Gomez, said: “Becoming a youth councillor is an amazing opportunity to change the lives of people living in your borough.”
