About us - 10,000 Voices
10,000 Voices was a region-wide consultation carried out with young people during Year of Young People in 2018.
Young people identified the top 5 issues that affected their lives within their ward and we were then successful in receiving money from the Scottish Government to give young people the chance to be change makers in their community and use Participatory Budgeting to help tackle these issues.
How it will work
The Youth Action Groups will come together to create a consultation on the back of the results from the YAGS are going to design 3 projects that they wish to see within their community that help tackle that specific issue. We will then put the application out into the community for organisations to apply for, then the YAGS will pick the organisations that they want to go to forward to the Participatory Budgeting vote, which will be voted for in the local area by local young people.
We want young people to be part of real change in their community with results that they know young people want!
