A National Conversation on the #PowerOfYouth

Host an listening event with leaders Young people’s voices need to be heard at a local level, not just in Westminster. You should have the opportunity to raise the issues which matter to you, and to ask leaders about how you can work together to address the challenges you face, during the pandemic and in the future. We’ve worked with creative youth organisation Beatfreeks to develop a guide to holding digital listening events between young people and organisations and leaders, and are calling on people to join the national conversation. Consider getting together with your local Youth Council, an organisation you volunteer for, or with your school to host a listening event and invite your local MP. You could also consider inviting other leading local figures, such as local councillors or business leaders. Lots of small listening events can make up one big conversation on the #PowerOfYouth.

Care for Care Homes

Care for Care Homes Join us in reducing the loneliness and improving the wellbeing of people in care homes as we collectively carry out 10,000 acts of kindness. Care homes have been hit incredibly hard by the current global pandemic, from residents falling ill to being separated from their loved ones. Young people have told us that they usually help care homes throughout the year and that the current crisis shouldn’t stop that from happening. That’s why over the next few weeks we’re asking young people to collectively carry out 10,000 acts of kindness to help residents in their local care home, become kindness champions and show that they ‘care for care homes’. From crafts to letters, videos to swapping skills, young people can help care home residents to feel less lonely and more connected during the current health crisis. Read More
