Youth Participation
Flower Crown Flower Flower Lightning Bolt Lightning Bolt Heart Heart

We help organisations achieve vibrant and transformative youth participation.

To get meaningful engagement with young people, every organisation needs a vibrant approach, a well thought-out strategy. and a clearly communicated vision. Without this, it can often feel like participation is tokenistic with frustrating false starts, demotivating drift, and ultimately, young people not engaging.

We all want to provide meaningful opportunities for young people to engage with our services – the challenges are finding the right member of staff to lead on it, having the right knowledge to engage with young people, and understanding how this all fits into service delivery and improvement.
