HARROW’S CHANGE CHAMPIONS

Be part of an exciting new youth leadership programme in Harrow

Are you aged between 16-24yrs and want to use your experience to help other young people in Harrow?

We are looking for a diverse group of young people that have ever experienced (current or past) needing extra support in any of the areas listed below.

The programme will see different community groups, guided by the Change Champions, coming together to review problems for young people in Harrow – and working together with professionals on developing and delivering solutions.

BACKGROUND:

In the summer of 2018, 4,358 young people in Harrow aged 10-21yrs told us the most urgent areas they need support with. Read the report here: 'This is Harrow'

Harrow's Change Champions will work with professionals to come up with solutions for young people - based on the needs that were highlighted in the report.

See what they have done so far in the Change Champions Overview and then get involved.
