30 young people made up the Camden Champions and they worked in three sub groups
The Young Commissioners provided input into the commissioning processes for Camden CCG and other services where possible. They also undertook service inspections, such as our upcoming CAMISH Mystery Shopping and create feedback reports. A number of our Young Commissioners also sat on the Youth Offending Service Youth Board.
Work they have undertaken so far:
The Young Promoters organised 12 outreach activities per year raising awareness of issues and what services are available for young people. They organised their own events, as well as bringing their pop up stall to other events across the borough. Examples included VoiceBox and the Camden Youth Action Showcase 2018 and have attended events such as Cloud 9 Festival and World Mental Health Day at City Hall. They aim to reach over 1000 young people per year via their stalls, events and also through promotional material such as their ‘Top Tips for Wellbeing’ Series. You can download the series below
The Young Programme Advisers have co produced and helped to build the new Peer Mentoring Project at Fitzrovia Youth in Action. They are also reviewing both the peer mentoring and peer education models and continue to create new content and recommendations for improvements. They are now going to be working with CAMISH and their education delivery for schools and youth centres.
Please gladly download our Top Tips for Wellbeing Series and use at your centre or school.
