Youth Week 2022 runs from May 7-15 and the theme is “Our voices matter, we deserve to be heard”.

Activities throughout the district will provide opportunities for young people to come together and enjoy what the area has to offer, while celebrating their place in our community and learning more about the Stratford District Youth Council.
