The

Voice of the North Project have launched a video, showcasing reflections on the Northern youth experience.


The project brings together brings together a partnership between key partners working for and with young people in the North of England. The majority of the young people are from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds and from a range of the North’s most deprived areas. The project has been designed to:

  1. Assert a youth voice and perspective in the current discourse and analysis on the role of Government policy, drawing on the experience of Northern youth communities

  2. Reject the politics of the ‘Other’ by getting young people to work together to address the structural, systemic and institutional basis of their poverty, disadvantage and exclusion

  3. Develop direct links between young people and policy makers that will enhance the understanding that policy makers and politicians have on issues that directly impact on young people.

  4. Empower young people through positive youth engagement using democratic processes to influence change

The Voice of the North Project is run by One North West and JUST West Yorkshire. To find out more, conact Dan Silver: daniel.silver@vsnw.org.uk
