As part of the bid, PYF are ensuring that young people who would otherwise not be involved, receive genuine opportunities for engagement within the City of Culture 2021 bid and beyond.

- To highlight opportunities for cross partnership working; and to work directly on enhancing these partnerships.

- To utilize PYF led activity to promote the work of all relevant 2021 groups.

- Creating pathways for programmes delivered by youth-focussed organisations to link in to the bid.
