The Big Youth Conversation 2021

The Big Youth Conversation is back and designed and developed by the Life Chances Youth Taskforce, a group of young people who support the Life Chances programme and help us improve services for young people throughout the borough. 

On this page you will find all the resources you need to promote the Big Youth Conversation to your students. 

2020 has been a strange and challenging year for all of us and we know that young people in particular have been hit hard by the pandemic. Now, more than ever, we need young people to make their voice heard and help us better support our community through this time.

The survey will run throughout July 2021 after which we will invite young people who have expressed an interest to take part in a virtual focus group. It is aimed at 11-25 year olds live, work or study in Waltham Forest.

During Covid -19 schools have been, and will continue to be, a safe and much needed hub of support for young people and our aim through the Big Youth Conversation is to ensure Waltham Forest continues to be a place where young people can lead healthy, safe, confident and resilient lives.
