SSCB Young Person Conference - 10.10.18
Our Young Person Conference was held on Wednesday 10th October 2018 and over 60 young people (aged 11-16)attended. We asked what makes them feel safe, what their biggest safeguarding concerns are and what they think agencies and the LSCB can do to minimise their concerns. Workshops were held by Barnardos, Washington Mind, Youth Drug & Alcohol Project (YDAP) and Knetic Education.
Take a look at our video here - thank you to students from Sunderland College who did this for us.
We used the young people's comments on what makes them feel safe and what makes them feel unsafe to build a wall.
We also asked them to rate which issue affects them the most and the results of this were:
Feeling safe on the streets – 58%, Homelessness - 24%, Education - 10%, Lack of youth provision - 8%
