We are pleased to present a report from researchers Natasha Evans and Jim Coe, which looks at where and how young people are leading change on issues that affect them, and how we as funders might better support them to do so.
Blagrave Trust commissioned this work as one part of helping us understand what taking a ‘youth led’ approach to policy and influencing might look like: we believe now more than ever that young people should be supported to have agency and be listened to on issues that matter to them. We plan to share our own ideas on supporting young people in this way in the new year, and hope that it will be of use to other funders and the wider youth sector.
