National youth led project opportunities

1st August 2019

Leaders Unlocked are working with Children England on an exciting new youth-led project: The ChildFair State Inquiry. They are now recruiting a team of 25 young people to form the core leadership team, to design and deliver the research project.

Here are all the materials you need to let young people know about this opportunity, including a flyer, a description of the role and an application form. More info at: https://www.childrenengland.org.uk/childfairstate-youngleaders

They would hugely appreciate it if you could please share this email with your colleagues best placed to let young people know about the project. The deadline for applications is: Friday 27th September.

The young people (13-21yrs old) will:

  • Develop their research and facilitation skills
  • Give other children and young people a voice
  • Explore their own and others’ experiences of public services
  • Work with a panel of experts to create proposals for change that are as rigorous as possible and as radical as necessary
  • Become, if they choose, active campaigners for the vision they create
  • They are very keen to make sure the project involves young people from different backgrounds and a wide range of life experiences. They want to hear from young people who have been affected by different issues and challenges – including (but not limited to) care experience, migration, poverty, experience of hospital stays, being a carer, living in different forms of housing, alternative education, special educational needs and disabilities.

    Any questions – please feel free to get in touch with Anna Crump at anna@leaders-unlocked.org or call her on 07928 885 199
