Youth Participation

The Trussell Trust is launching a new youth participation programme that seeks to change minds on the impact of financial hardship and food poverty. The programme will support young people to share their voices and experiences, influencing long-term solutions to poverty in the UK. Young participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Be part of shaping a national programme working with young people across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
  • Gain support, skills and training in storytelling, social action campaigns, digital media tools and more
  • Create interactive, educational resources and digital media content for use in schools and youth projects

This opportunity is currently available to young people aged 15-20, who have first-hand experience of using food banks or facing financial hardship.

It is a two-year programme and we are recruiting for the first group of 12 now!

If you have any questions about this project please contact Louise Kinsella, Youth Participation Manager on 07704 343 095.
