This is an exciting new developmental role, whose principle purpose is to recruit, engage and co-ordinate a group of local young people with the aim of enabling and empowering them to ensure their voices are heard and bring about change. This may include increasing their levels of confidence, improving their communication skills and improving their ability to self-advocate. We envisage that the young people engaged will develop new projects and services in response to their needs and that of the local community.
Big Local SW11 along with 5 charities that make up the BLSW11 Alliance are working together for the young people of Battersea. This role will include working across the 5 charities along with other voluntary organisations in Battersea.
Whilst ‘Battersea Youth Voice’ will be open to all young people, the Coordinator’s main role will be to target those young people that have been marginalised, deemed of as ‘hard to reach’ and who rarely have their voices heard.
