Yesterday saw the launch event for our work to improve the life chances of young people in and around Ludlow. Our first workshop with Locality went well with around 20 people working on mapping youth provision and needs for youth support.
The second workshop on 14 March will turn towards what actions we can take to deliver youth support in future years. Our aims are both immediate – what do we do in 2017 – and longer term – what outcomes do we want to see in 2017.
One of the first lessons from yesterday’s workshop is that we need to improve communication between people working with and supporting young people. There are a number of ways we can do this, for example, with a newsletter, website or on Facebook. Whatever we set up will need to be self-sustaining.
We want to involve as many people as possible in the youth resilience project. If you want to take part or think you can help in any way, please contact me.
This project is being coordinated by the Ludlow and Clee Local Joint Committee.
