Sharing power with children and young people: Invitation to partner

Published: 18 December 2020

Preventing violence is a priority for many young people in the UK who feel its impacts through fear, stress, loss, and physical harm. As well as being directly impacted by it, young people also talk about violence as a symptom of wider challenges faced in many places, like social division, poverty and disadvantage. 

BBC Children in Need and Social Finance’s Impact Incubator are forming a new partnership to reduce the violence that impacts children and young people and their communities across the UK. We want expert partners to join us, strengthen the work, and realise our aim of sharing power with children and young people and their communities.
