Youth Voice Creating Youth Inclusion

Chickenshed are delighted to have secured a significant grant from the Mayor of London's Young Londoners Fund. Through this funding we are developing a new project 'Youth Voice Creating Youth Inclusion' in partnership with safeguarding organisation Shared Vision. 

Growing out of our Crime of the Century outreach work, this project engages at-risk young people in activities that educate them on the risks and consequences of gang and knife crime, and provide them with platforms to communicate their challenges, solutions and ambitions to communities and key strategic stakeholders.

Project activities include workshops, performances, community debates, youth and professionals conferences and youth leadership training. 

Activities are all designed and delivered by staff and peers with comparable lived experiences.

Through the activities young people are made aware of how their actions can affect positive change and improve their communities, empowering them to make their own positive choices.

This project is funded by the Mayor's Young Londoners Fund:
