ensuring that young people are involved

Young people lie at the heart of everything we do.

We are committed to ensuring that young people are involved in every aspect of our work. That way, we can feel confident that the services and initiatives we develop will appeal to young people. Our approach also fosters confidence and leadership skills by offering opportunities for children and young people to shape our services.
