HARROW’S CHANGE CHAMPIONS

Be part of an exciting new youth leadership programme in Harrow

Are you aged between 15-25yrs and want to help shake up support services for young people in Harrow?

We are looking for a diverse group of young people that have first-hand experience of needing extra support in any of the areas below. This can be recent past experience, or current experience.


You will be passionate about using this experience to make big changes for other young people in Harrow.

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
