NE Youth staff are committed to listening to and acting on the views of young people. As an organisation we have put youth participation and youth voice at the heart of our 3 year strategic plan so that we can continue to improve and embed our practice in this area. We have also set ourselves the target of achieving Flagship NYA Hear by Right status, which is the youth sector standard for participation work, by 2022. We have made out Commitment Pledge and are on our way to achieving this!

In addition to this, we want to be able to support young people to have their voices heard on a national level so we have also pledged our support to the UK Youth Parliament. We hope that our relationship with the UK Youth Parliament will open up opportunities for the young people of the North East to to support meaningful social change.
