Young Women’s Advisory Panel

Join the Advisory Panel 

The Young Women's Advisory Panel is a group of 30 young women, aged 18–30, from across England and Wales.    

The Advisory Panel gives power to you. Young women are at the heart of the work that the Young Women’s Trust do – leading, designing and campaigning based on your own experiences of living on low or pay.

We’re not looking for new panel members at the moment.

If you'd like to get involved with Young Women's Trust, you can join our Facebook group for young women, the Lounge, sign up for our monthly newsletter or follow us on Instagram or Twitter

Who can apply to be a panel member

  • Women aged 18 - 30
  • Living in England and Wales  
  • With experience of living on low or no pay, who are not in full time education

This could mean that you are unemployed, in low paid work or insecure work (like a zero hours contract). You might also be a young mum, have caring responsibilities, not have many qualifications, be a care leaver or disabled. You might have experienced other barriers to work for example sexual harassment or experience of the criminal justice system.
