Peer Power present at YJB Cymru – the Youth Justice Board’s Directorate for Wales

Anne-Marie Douglas and a young person from Peer Power presented to South Wales Youth Justice Services at their YJB Cymru Away Day in Cardiff on; ‘The Voice of the Young Person: Improving the participation of young people in service design and delivery.’

Feedback after the event for young people included:

“…listening to the young people. First hand experience, knowledge and feedback is invaluable”.

We also received a letter from Dusty Kennedy, Director of YJB Cymru and the Youth Justice Board’s Champion for the voice of the young person thanking us for the presentation, and stating;

“…we have had some very positive feedback about your input which has inspired a number of our youth offending teams to think more about how they too can engage young people in more meaningful ways and work past basic consultation towards co-production.”
