A collection of flexible tools that can help anyone to engage young people in creative, inspiring and effective ways.
Each tool was co-designed by either young people in collaboration with Child Action North West and Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, or by professionals who work with young people every day. The tools reflect real experiences and challenges young people face and have proven themselves in the hands of young people, youth workers and engagement professionals alike.
The tools offer a new approach to engaging young people. They give young people inspiring, creative ways to articulate their ideas, but more importantly the tools offer ways of working that fit with the way young people think and develop ideas.
To capture the story of our young co-designers and the tools they created we made a one-off newspaper. The newspaper was given to everyone who worked on the project, and is a great way to get inside the co-design process and the tools it produced. The Inspirer newspaper can be downloaded here.
