PART ONE: Youth Workshop

Minutes:

The workshop was attended by young people from St Laurence School and from the BoA Youth Club. Pizza and drinks had been provided to enticed them to stay on after school!

 

Councillor Jim Lynch, Chairman of the Bradford on Avon Local Youth Network, introduced Councillor Alex Kay, Mayor of Bradford on Avon. On behalf of the Town Council and its youth provider, Community Family Care (CFC), Alex welcomed all, particularly the young people present who had come to input their ideas to help shape up the new youth service for the Bradford on Avon area.

Sasha Hart from CFC introduced her team and gave a presentation by way of an introduction to the company and to the contract that they had been commissioned to deliver

Using flipchart, post-it notes and marker pens, the young people were asked to summarise the local youth issues that needed to be addressed, and also to come up with ideas for the name and shape of the new service.

 

Comments from CFC

The session provided a good start to the process of defining the new youth service. The group 14 young people attended and engaged in the exercises, writing down their ideas and presenting them to the room using the microphones provided. Pictures of what they created and their ideas can be found below. We are really pleased with the feedback from the meeting however we are aware this doesn’t give us a detailed and representative cross-section of the thoughts of all young people across Bradford on Avon. We have therefore also conducted an online survey through which nearly 800 young people have been engaged. Both of these pieces of work will be brought together and used to inform planning and practice decisions going forward – especially in setting up a young person led forum.

 

Next Steps

Councillor Lynch thanked all for their enthusiastic participation in the workshop. The outcomes would be fed into the launch of the new service which was planned for October half term week at the BoA Youth Club. Thereafter, the Area Board is keen to work with the Town Council and interested parish councils to bring the service out to the villages so that it becomes a community-area-wide initiative. There is great potential to pool funding from the Town Council, parish councils, Wiltshire Council and the Colonel Llewellen Palmer Trust, a local educational charity with an annual grants scheme, to join up services and funding for the benefit of young people locally.
