Young Hackney people urged to get on board to make their voice heard in the community

PUBLISHED: 16:57 01 August 2012

Young people from Hackney’s estates are being urged to take part in a programme to make a difference to the community.

Established two years ago, the Youth Engagement Plus Programme (YEP) allows young people to make their voice heard.

Committee members meet on a regular basis to arrange activities and events in the community, and are also represent the views of their peers through tenant and resident association meetings, neighbourhood youth forums and within the Hackney Youth Parliament.

The programme is a partnership between Hackney Homes, Genesis Housing Association, Sanctuary Housing and youth organisation Rising Tide.
