WCVYS are working in Partnership with Orbit Housing, Willmott Dixon, Support Sport, Targeted Support 4 Young People and The Stratford District Community Area Team in order to better understand the needs of young people in and around Alcester.

We are hoping to be able to apply for some funding in order to create a multi agency approach to best meeting the needs of young people. This will provide opportunities for both statutory and voluntary sector organisations to come together to support young people through a wide range of activities and services as identified through the consultation process.

Attached to this email are 2 questionnaires, one aimed at 13-16 year olds and the other at those aged 16-24. Every young person from in and around Alcester who completes the questionnaire, provides their name and contact number and returns the form to us via the email or postal address provided at the top of the questionnaire by Friday 23rd January will be entered in to a prize draw to win an iPad!

We would be extremely grateful if you could forward this email as widely as possible in order to maximise the number of young people who can engage in this process. We are committed to listening to what all young people aged 13-24 have to say in order to best shape this work going forward and are particularly keen to reach those who do not currently engage in order to understand why and what can be put in place to support them. 

In addition to this we would appreciate any thoughts and opinions you as staff and volunteers with knowledge of the area can input into this process. I would really appreciate a quick email as a reply to this message with a few bullet points of work that you are doing in the area, gaps of things that are not happening in the area and/or issues or problems that you are aware of.

Depending on the results of this consultation there may be a chance for your project/organisation to engage in this work moving forward and we would be keen to hear if this is something that you might be interested in.
