18 Up

What is 18 Up?

18 Up is an ambitious new project designed to give young people living on the Alton, Winstanley or York Road estates chances to shape and improve the services available to help them succeed in life.

If you are aged 18-24 (or 17 but about to turn 18) and live on one of these estates then you are eligible to take part.

By joining 18 Up's panel of young people, you will have a platform to tell decision-makers about your experiences going through education, securing employment, using other services in the borough, as well as outlining your ambitions for the future.

As part of the project you can take part in online surveys, discussion forums and workshops.

Your level of involvement is up to you, but as a thank you for getting involved you can expect to earn vouchers to spend online, be entered into prize draws, take part in volunteering/training opportunities - and much more.

Get involved

If you are interested in the 18 Up initiative, all you need to do is go through a quick registration process online.

All of your details will be held securely.
