  • To continue¬†to ensure that our work is inclusive and actively engages young people aged between 18-20, particularly our introduction to campaigning workshops.
  • To seek funding for a specific programme to train young people in campaigning.

We have recently joined the #iwill campaign. Pledging our support to develop young people as campaigners of the future. We have trained two groups of young people on campaigning tools and techniques, helping them to add campaigning to their social action activities.
Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
"The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK. We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life. Over 350 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?"
