DEVELOPING SERVICES WITH THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND WHAT IT'S LIKE TO RECEIVE THEM

Providing opportunities for young people and adults to co-design service improvement.

Meaningful engagement that is transformational for young people and services

Our leaders have both professional and personal experience of children’s services, and have supported the development of some of the UK’s most innovative projects. We bring this extensive experience to your project to help you improve outcomes for young people.

We work with you to design a service development approach that aligns with your ambitions, whether this is a one-off workshop or a longer-term transformation programme.

With over 10 years’ experience in the social care, education and children’s sector we have supported multiple organisations, including:

HOW WE DEVELOP SERVICES

service-individual-section-overlay

Vision Development

Co-create an aspirational vision that focuses your workforce on common goals to improve the lives of children, drawing on lived experience to explore, illuminate and energise.

Workshops

Collaborative workshops that explore key areas of your service with young people and adults. We bring together professional and lived experience to support the co-design of services that improve children’s lives.

You may wish to do a single workshop, or run a series of workshops as part of a longer-term transformation project.

Youth Participation

Make youth participation authentic and engaging for young people and transformative for services.

How we support
transformative co-design

We work closely with you from your project’s inception to completion, whether this is a single piece of training, a keynote or a longer-term transformation project.

We recognise the issues that affect young people are complex and challenging, so our first priority is to understand your and their experiences, perspectives and ambitions.

Opening up challenging issues is hard: we add value as creative, experienced partners, who can ask new questions and enable new insights.
Like you, we know that young people’s voices really matter but that it may be hard to directly engage with them from within an organisation.
Youth participation and consultation can be transformational. We make a space in which young people’s views can remind us of our core purpose, inform change and energise teams.

Our commitment is to work with you to build understanding, create opportunities and improve outcomes by ensuring young people leave services in a better place than when they entered them.

HOW WE WORK WITH BIGGER PROJECTS

In our large projects, we work with you to build a custom offer to support you to meet your organisation’s developmental goals.

1

We agree a ‘custom offer’

This includes outputs, expected outcomes, overall timescale + fees.

2

We co-create a brief with you

This includes the team, project phases, outputs for each phase, a detailed timeline, budget breakdown, impact measurement and reporting. This then is written into a contract.

3

We create an online project plan

Our project plans are built into an online platform that gives you instant access, real time updates to the project and enables you to download reports and send us comments. Our project plans include a project dashboard, Gantt chart, RACI matrix, RAG reporting and more.
