New (free!) toolkit for meaningful participation

Blagrave partner, the Young Women’s Trust, has launched Working inclusively with young women’: A toolkit for meaningful participation.

Developed with young women and drawing on Young Women’s Trust’s extensive experience of participation and engagement work, the toolkit is aimed at anyone who works with young women – including policymakers, employers, service providers, commissioners and practitioners.

The toolkit, which was developed with support from the Government Equalities Office Women’s Vote Centenary Grant, highlights the enormous benefits of involving young women in decision making, the important things to consider when seeking the views of young women with complex needs, and the most effective ways to encourage their meaningful participation.
