The “YoUth Decide” Project is an Intergenerational Project consisting of Local Conference Events and Mentorship Workshops that tackle Youth Violence, Exploitation, Mental Wellbeing, Domestic Abuse and Unemployment.
• To identify what issues the younger generation (13 – 25) feel needs to be addressed by the State, Stakeholders and the wider community in order to restore communication.
• To raise awareness of the impact that youth violence and disengagement has on the mental wellbeing of young people and the rippling effects upon the communities in which they live in.
• To restore trust in the State’s ability to work openly, honestly and collaboratively with the community to achieve resolutions to expressed problems.
• To liaise with and seek contribution to the conversation from parents, community organisations, government bodies and members of the general public.
• To disseminate information to the wider community, relevant institutions and government bodies in order to implement appropriate strategies and services moving forward.
