The following long-term strategic objectives have been agreed by Trustees. By 2025:
With a national youth lead, as well as youth and community events coordinators in each region, we’ve been working hard to get fully ‘youth fit’. We’ve been updating our policies and safeguarding systems, providing guidance and training for colleagues and volunteers, and, of course, talking to young people about their needs, interests and aspirations.
There is already lots of great work happening across the waterways, particularly in the form of youth social action delivered by local volunteering teams and projects.
Working with partners including the National Citizen Service, the Scouts and the Duke of Edinburgh Award, we're able to reach new audiences and develop a distinct and diverse youth offer. Our partner work also helps us to make real progress towards our ambition to engage a million children and young people a year by 2025.
