Ambitions for 2018?
One of mine and for Your Own Place CIC is to capture the voice of the young people we set up to support. For this we are seeking funding/investment.
It will not be an afterthought, rather a meaningful and rewarding experience for the 12 young people and eight handpicked stakeholders that will form the Your Own Place Advisory Board (YOPAB).
YOPAB will cover our services across Norfolk and Suffolk and be run in partnership with the experts in youth voice – our friends and colleagues The Participation People and Antonia Dixey.
Our aim – to ensure Your Own Place is as good as it can be in achieving its mission – by the indicators defined by young people.
YOPAB youth members will be trained to run the YOPAB and supported to reach a wider audience of young people, provide our quality assurance, strategic and operational insights as well as help us to grow. One will also be appointed to our Board of Directors.
We’re looking to raise £20k across Norfolk and Suffolk to run this until 2020.
