“Hello and welcome to ‘Young Voices Heard’, a movement promoting greater youth engagement and participation in public life and democracy, supporting young people to be changemakers, leaders, advisors, trustees, designers, entrepreneurs, writers, volunteers, campaigners and elected representatives We have been operating since 2017 as a not-for-profit campaign and youth participation support service (see portfolio of past activities) and in 2020 we will be launching a new Social Enterprise to enable us to operate sustainably as well as to facilitate more investment in the next wave of the youth-voice movement, through better reporting of news, recognition of success, research and the sharing of good practice. Watch out for two new projects ‘Youth Voice Now’ and ‘Youth Voice Network’.
To fund these developments, we offer a range of support services to organisations, trustees, directors, elected representatives and the media, who want to introduce, manage, review or benchmark their work with young people – all to recognised national standards, as well as continued access to youth participation specialist James Cathcart (Cathcart Consultancy).
