East Ayrshire are committed to keeping The Promise. At the heart of The Promise is a pledge to meaningfully listen and respond to the voice of young people in line with Article 12 of UNCRC. We want our young people to know that their voices are shaping change in their local community, so on the 12th of June we are hosting a Hope Hack.
This event will bring together 80-100 young people aged between 14 and 24 years old. We want to inspire them and ask them to re-imagine a more positive future in relation to 7 key themes including: education, employment, housing and social opportunities, the environment, reducing violence and physical and mental wellness. They will propose change ideas and present these to leaders from local authority, police and health services. The goal is to develop projects to put their ideas into action.
We need your help to encourage young people to come along and have their say. We want to ensure there is a rich mix of young people at the event, including those who are on the edges of the health, care and education systems, or who have had experience of these services in the past.
Young people can sign-up via the QR code on the flyer.
Support is available with transport, and there will be a wide range of facilitators from across communities, partners and the partnership on the day to help young people take part.
This is a great opportunity to enable our young people to influence change in their local community and beyond. Your support with this is very much appreciated.
If you have any questions please contact Heather Irving (firstname.lastname@example.org), Fiona Bain (email@example.com) or Geoff Leask (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
