Summary 

 

We produced and performed a live radio, pre-election panel show featuring local politicians including Kevin Foster, The Mayor Gordon Oliver and the Churston Headteacher, Robert Owers. We trained the Youth Parliament in radio production skills and they produced vox pops of young people’s views around jobs, mental health and the curriculum and played these out as part of the broadcast. This was part of the Made From Scratch programme funded by the Torbay Youth Cultural Partnership’s Bridge Challenge Fund.

 

Aims:

-To encourage young people to discuss and shares issues that matter to them

-To encourage young people to get involved in the democratic process

-To inform stakeholders of young peoples views

-to hold politicians to accoutn around issues affecting young people
