Driving equity through greater engagement with least-heard and worst-served groups is one of our key strategic goals. At present young people from worst-served groups face barriers to support, with services often not designed for, or reflective of them.
We know our members have better reach to young people from some of the worst served groups than statutory services. Still, much more needs to be done to dismantle institutional and systemic barriers and discrimination, improve members’ understanding and provision, and spread good practice.
Take a look at some of the projects we've been working on to drive equity across services.
