Action Van

community, young people, safe spaces

We will help young people find their own place in their community by listening to their issues, helping them develop creative ideas to address those issues, and putting them in touch with the people, networks, funding etc to turn those ideas into ACTION. At the heart of this project is the Action Team and the Action Van. The Action Team is a multi-disciplinary team given the freedom to cut through red tape and break down barriers. The Action Van will visit communities and young people where they have identified issues, give them a space to explore the issues / ideas and meet the Team. The van is backed up by social media. We will pilot this first in Whipton, a community in Devon who have already asked for help.
