Welcome

You may have heard about our upcoming event, the Act for Change Together Festival, happening between Monday 26th and Saturday 31st July. Like every great event, it needs a great beginning, so we’ve put together an introduction session to start the week off with a bang!

Youth participation is a difficult cliff to traverse, and can feel hard to do in a way that meets an organisation's needs and those of the young people too.

More than a statistic

Headlines about young people with lived experience of care focus on the negatives. We’re told they’re trouble-makers, don’t do well at school, live their lives on benefits and getting mixed up in crime.

Discovering the power of your story

Delve into the world of storytelling and change making! You will learn how to apply clear techniques to your writing to help influence, empower and encourage others to take action and support your cause.
