    I hope that when the young people say what they have to say, the right people will have the decency to be present and observe as well as listen. Action is what is needed!
    The youths need to feel a sense of self worth. At the moment the remedy of Mister Government himself is to create a country full of Eastern Europeans who have committed more crimes in their own countries and can roam here free. Black man doesn’t even get three strikes and out no more, they are black and at the back!

    What an amazing young woman you are…I have just read your knife crime discussion post which was so on point. Please keep doing what you do, giving young people a voice in a space where they feel safe and listened to is so important. Stay blessed.

    Hi Young People Insight,

    I manage a new initiative called Shared Nation. We are a virtual giving circle whose members pool their money and every month collectively decide how to allocate our resources.

    We’re currently nominating organizations for our June ‘youth-led” round. We anticipate having at least $7,000 to allocate, and the project that our community selects will get 80% of our funds. In addition, all the participating organizations will share 10% of our pooled resources, meaning everyone gets some small sum of money to acknowledge their important work, as well as increased visibility.

    We’re interested in considering Young People Insight for funding in June. We would just need to receive confirmation that you would be interested.

    Let us know if you have questions. If you have an active email address, I can send you more information.

      Hello Keith,

      Thank you for your message and letting YPI know about the initiative. It sounds like a great opportunity, but we are based in the UK, so would we still be eligible? You can email youngpeopleinsight@gmail.com with more information.

      Best wishes,

Share your insight
