Our Young People in the Lead Wales team
The National Lottery Community Fund is the largest funder of children and young people activity across the UK.
Over a third of our funding goes to the smallest of grassroots groups right up to large UK-wide charities to ensure children and young people thrive. We therefore have big plans for 2020 and beyond as we work to make sure young people’s voices are included in all our work, whether it’s through the grants we make, the people we influence or the things we learn.
We strongly believe that when people are in the lead, communities thrive. So, in Wales, we have recruited 10 dynamic young people to work closely, and partner with us, over the coming months.
Through the Young People in the Lead Wales advisory panel, we aim to meet the issues young people and their communities are facing head on, with the aim of steering significant and positive change in communities.
The Young People in the Lead Wales team meet with our Wales Knowledge and Learning team and decide as a team what work to focus on and how it should be achieved. They also receive support and guidance from our staff as part of a tailored training package to develop their skills and experience.
