Social action projects

Social action is about people coming together to help improve their lives and solve the important issues facing their community. Our team works closely with participants to help them identify an issue in their local community that they are passionate about solving. The group are then supported in developing the practical solution and putting it into action.

Our social action projects adhere to six key principles. They must:

  • Be youth led
  • Be challenging
  • Have a social impact
  • Allow progression to other opportunities
  • Be embedded in the young persons life
  • Enable reflection about the value of the activity
