The Youth Panel’s full title is the Radstock and Westfield Big Local Youth Panel. This is because it is part of the Radstock and Westfield Big Local; a community group that invests locally to make good things happen.

The Youth Panel was set up to give young people a say on how this community group should invest. They have been given £5,000 a year for three years. Young people are invited to think of a project that will be of benefit to them or the community and make an application to the Youth Panel for funding to help make it happen.
