Children England are looking for young people aged 13 - 21 to help develop a new vision for the welfare state by children and young people themselves, with support from a sounding board of policy experts.

This project will give young people the opportunity to shape the state they live in by challenging issues in areas like education, housing and public spaces, and come up with creative proposals for putting children's needs at the heart of local and national policy and practice.

They are also looking for approriate settings to host a research session lead by the Young Leaders once they've designed their plan. If you think your place of work would work, please contact them.

As well, they would like to hear from if you have any suggestions and ideas on other ways to get children and young peoples views by doing a tailored activity to gage their views.

For further information on the project you can read the full description of the work and the role here.

Any young person who would like to get involve in the project can apply here, before the deadline on Friday 27th September.

Contact Chloë on with any questions about the overall project, or Anna on with questions about the Young Leader role.
