Brockley Youth Forum launch, November 24th

Kate Yorke from Lewisham Council writes:

The youth forum is designed for 12-17 year olds and is being supported by the Brockley Local Assembly and the Councillors and aims to increase both democratic engagement and community involvement of young people in the local area. It has been given about £3000 to spend on projects and campaigns and the aim of the launch event on Saturday is to find out the areas which young people are most interested in focusing on.

The Girls Group that meets at St Andrew's in Brockley is involved in running the event, and has come up with many of the key ideas for the day. One theme that has already been highlighted by the group is safer skating, which is why we decided to have skate workshops and safety checks at the event.
