Aims, Objectives and Outcomes
1.) Through effective use of promotion we will engage young people in the youth club and youth council. Offering a range of fun, safe and relevant sessional content, learning and training. Enabling them to have a voice for themselves and their community.
2.) To encourage young people to engage, support and communicate effectively with their community through other organisations and projects.
3.) Provide platform for young people to share their views, opinions, concerns and ideas through the use of surveys, consultations and campaigns to identify the young people's need and shape provision.
4.) To engage young people who do not currently access services through a range of detached and outreach activities, which provides support for young people in their own environment and tackles issues highlighted through consultations.
5.) To form positive and effective working relationships with other individuals, organisations and agencies in the area who have a shared and vested interest in the welfare of young people.
