Do you want your voice to be heard? Do you see things in the world you want to change? Do you want to represent young people’s views? We have a range of options from our youth forum to grant funding for you to make a difference while meeting some amazing people, making new friends and learning new skills along the way. The children and young people we work with are the beating heart of Epic and the local community. We believe their voices, ideas and opinions are integral to shaping our work and the local community.
We can train young people to become Young Inspectors to talk to their peers about how service providers could be more youth friendly.
Young people will be trained to inspect services using a variety of methods including interviews, filming and consultation techniques, and provide inspection reports.Read more
