Strategy says #yes to bright future for city's young people

Orchard centre student Jess McCallum has helped shape the new co produced youth engagement strategy. The ambitious new strategy designed to help Wolverhampton's children and young people reach their full potential was officially launched before a packed audience at The Way Youth Zone yesterday (Monday 27 January, 2020).

The Youth Engagement Strategy, #YES, was developed following extensive feedback from nearly 12,000 children and young people and their parents and carers and will support 8 to 18 year olds, or up to 25 for those with special educational needs or disabilities, to be healthier, be connected and be heard.It comes with additional funding of nearly £2 million over the next 3 years which will be used to create a new, city wide youth engagement team, provide better information about and signposting to events and opportunities, and set up a funding pot which young people, families, groups and organisations can use to develop new activities.
