Eight young people from the Broadland Youth Advisory Board (YAB) have taken part in training to improve their abilities as young commissioners.

Through volunteering with the advisory board, young people aged 11 to 19 help make decisions about their area and give advice to professionals in the district.

The training course, which was delivered by YMCA Norfolk, gave the young commissioners new skills in quality assurance, communication and evaluation. The aim of the training was to help the young people to feel confident and competent in their roles.

'Today hasn't just been fun, I have also learned a lot about quality assuring too,' said young commissioner Ruby Smith- Briggs, aged 16. 'I think what I have learned today won't just help me in the YAB, will help me in my future too.'
