Back in January, I held the first Young People Insight forum, asking the young people in attendance what issues were important to them, as well as what they wanted from me and this platform.
Now we’re in the last month of the year, after holding 10 forums that covered various topics, including employment, violent crime and relationships. As well as the forums, there was also the first poetry night in November.
This makes it the ideal time for us to talk about moving forward as we go into 2017. I want you to be part of the conversation of how Young People Insight will move forward next year, as it is important that you feel this platform is yours as much at it is mine. We will also be looking back at what we’ve done over this year, identifying what worked well and what can be improved upon.
I think this is set to be a good conversation, helping to put Young People Insight in a good position for next year. It will be followed by the games night, which will be fun, so even if you can’t make the forum, come out to play with us.
So if you’re 16-25, don’t miss the final Young People Insight forum of 2016 on Tuesday 20th December from 6.30-8.30pm in Project B (1 Bell Hill, Croydon CR0 1FB).
