YMCA - Shape My Future

YMCA DLG is currently consulting children and young people across our localities (East Sussex, Brighton & Hove, West Sussex, Surrey) to hear about their hopes for their futures and the issues that affect their lives or are of concern to them. They are undertaking street surveys, an online survey and focus groups until mid-January.

‘Shape My Future’ findings will help inform our YMCA DLG 2025 vision strategy which are starting to develop; and will inform future Involvement & Influencing projects designed and delivered by children and young people, e.g. youth led campaigns.

YMCA DLG are keen to hear not just from children and young people who access YMCA services or live with them, but also children and young people in our communities who may have never heard of the YMCA.

A QR code and the website link are in the poster, and here is the website link:
