Valuing contributions – Gillian


Youth participation is encouraged in Gillian’s team by checking back and ensuring logistical support


But then when you get to the co-design event – and I mean constant member checking, constant going back “did we get this right?” is part of it, so that they feel included throughout. It takes a lot of logistical support even to get youth in the room. We always send taxis to bring them here so that there’s a defined time and a place and a person, either to bring them here or we go to them, we’ve tried both approaches. And creating a conducive environment is really critical as well and meeting youth where they’re at in the community and so on.
