Feedback from partner agencies who have commissioned/worked with the LSCB Young Advisors:

“LSCB Young Advisors team are doing a fantastic job in helping to improve our communities and solve issues for young people. I was fortunate enough to attend a presentation delivered by Faith and Joe, two of the group at the Everyman regarding how Young People across the city feel about arts and culture and how they would like to engage. The presentation was excellently structured, well researched and delivered in a clear and concise manner plus passion and are well supported and supervised.

It is now our responsibility to help meet the Young Peoples needs and deliver services/activities which they will both enjoy and gain benefit from. I have been made aware that the Young People are now looking at issues relating to school attendance and I am positive that they will again do an excellent job and have a real impact in this area”
