Engaging practice. Engaging young citizens from disadvantaged communities, a good practice guide. CSV, 2011
nvolving young people in service design and provision has changed from being something that government organisations strived to do, in order to meet set targets, to now being the law. That's why it's more important now than ever before to make sure that young people are engaged with every aspect of their lives, in shaping their communities through joint decision making or volunteering; making a vital contribution to their neighbourhoods. Already, it's those aged between 16 and 24 who have the highest take up rate of volunteering opportunities (with 50% of 16-19 year olds reported to volunteer at least once a month).
That's something that doesn't often get the recognition it deserves among the rush to involve and engage young people; it's something we should celebrate and build on, but that can only be done if young people are engaged effectively. This is what Engaging Practice strives to facilitate.
Young Disabled Leaders. Engaging The Power House. Funded by The Young Foundation, Radar/CSV 2011
The Young Disabled Leaders (YDL) project took place over a one-year period, covering the three areas of London, Birmingham and the Leeds / Humberside region. In each of these areas, three training days were held to focus on different aspects of 'Leadership'.
Radar and CSV have spent the last year working with its Young Disabled Leaders to gather their thoughts and experiences of volunteering, civic action and trying to 'get involved'. In addition to this, we have compiled information already in the public domain to form this section of our report. It aims to give organisations like yours, advice and ideas on how to better engage with young disabled people, to capitalise on their skills, talents and creativity, as demonstrated throughout this YDL project.
