Young Voices Heard were partners on two initiatives funded by Historic England on valuing, celebrating and protecting our heritage. The first was a social action pilot with the Volunteer Police Cadets 2019-2022, followed by a feasibility study building on this in partnership with Youth United Foundation (network of uniformed organisations)
Youth voice, participation and influence were key elements of both the national development and local delivery of these initiatives and are part of an ongoing process of partnership development between the youth and heritage sectors. Contact James Cathcart using the form below for more information or if you would like to work with YVH on mobilising your youth voice to explore heritage, identity and partnership project funding.
A more detailed summary of the projects, and more recommended reading and advice on heritage youth voice will follow but here are two of the project reports for reference.
