Testimonials

On behalf of Sefton Young Carers I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for the recent piece of work the Young Advisors supported us with earlier in the year.  We wanted to ask a group of young people some of which were young carers themselves to help us design a service charter, a set of guidelines and core values of what they expected from us as a service. 

The team were very professional and made all aspects of their session accessible for all abilities and strengths.  They made everyone feel at ease with their very inventive ice breaker games and we feel the sessions really supported the young people to express their thoughts and opinions.  They supported the young people to give us feedback on designs for our logo and helped to ‘youth proof’ our service charter so that it applied to all ages.”

“It was such a fantastic and positive experience to have the Young Advisors delivering training to other young people. I work with young people with special educational needs, disabilities and other additional needs so, having such committed, well trained and inspiring Young Advisors means that they are such great role models to other young people and this raises aspirations. I have used (and will continue to use) the Sefton Young Advisors team to support my work. They have been flexible and professional supporting me in the following areas with my young people:

  • Training
  • Supporting design and  delivery of interactive sessions
  • Consultations/research about what my group would like
  • Gathering feedback for me from the group
  • Youth proofing my documents and promotional materials
  • Supported in the recruitment of mentors”
