The Democracy Project



Our session was held at Blacon Enterprise Centre and was hosted by Nigel Pell-Ilderton of Sanctuary Services. Nigel got the group together as he wanted to hear directly from children in Blacon to see how they feel Avenue services can improve their lives in the area. Ideas such as community driven litter-picking and flower-bed planting were raised as well as redesigning parks and playgrounds to make facilities better for children. He also wanted to hear how they would like to be involved in being part of future meetings so they can be sure their voices are heard when decisions on youth services are taken. They were all really enthusiastic to come up with ideas and enjoyed sharing them with the other schools attending.

A smaller group of representatives might have the opportunity to attend the next board meeting to put forward their ideas.

It was a great opportunity for the children to see how they can affect their own community and they were enthusiastic to be involved in sharing their ideas.
