Youth participation/Young People's Voice - making sure young people have a say

IYSS has a participation worker who runs the borough wide Youth Council and offers training and support to services on involving young people in decision-making. Young people get involved in user forums, staff recruitment, service planning and commissioning and lots of other projects.

We also run the Youth Opportunity Fund (YOF) through which young people can put in applications for grants which are assessed by panels of other young people.
