Learn about Youth Voice
Youth Voice is fundamental to the work and delivery that PYF offers to young people, communities, and partner organisations.
We ensure that collecting and responding to insights and opinions is a priority.
We believe that it is essential for youth organisations or any professional with a remit of young people to take on board their views in relation service development. This can help to shape how policy is designed and how provisions are implemented in local, regional or national contexts.
We work alongside local, regional, and national partners to support raising the creation of safe spaces for this to happen.
Our Youth Voice activities include:
- Consultations, surveys, research & interviews directly with young people and communities (directly with PYF and also with external organisations & local authorities)
- Positive Young Thinkers & the Changing Trax Collective - PYF’s youth advisory boards running alongside volunteering & youth leadership programmes
- Toolkits & Training packages for professionals and young people to engage in effective youth voice collection
- Commissioned projects with regional partners across the West Midlands (West Midlands Violence Reduction Partnership & WMCA Young Combined Authority)
