OUR Main Activities

ASsesment

We want to assess how local authorities currently support local youth forums and youth participation, capture young people's stories and experiences, and identify best practice.

SMALL GRANTS

Finally, we want to directly support local youth forums through our small grants intiative: 'ALYVE & Kicking!'

This will build on our report, and hopefully bridge the funding gap that some forums face.
