Bradford Youth Offending Team
User Voice work with Bradford YOT running a consultation with young people using their services.
The aim is to support YOT service development from a service user perspective.
An event was held in July 2012, through questionnaires and focus groups facilitated by User Voice staff. During this event peer-elected Youth Reps met with key stakeholders in local youth justice and presented young people’s priority areas for discussion.
This co-produced event led to a number of important discussions and recommendations, which were then presented to Bradford Children’s Services for the next steps.
User Voice are continuing to work with Bradford YOT and engage service users.
The next phase of the project will include seeking young people’s views about local services.
