“Young people should expect to have a bright future
and aspire to achieve their individual goals”
oneRichmond is pleased that a commissioned peer led research report on the needs of young people in Richmond has been completed.
An abridged version of the report and recommendations can be accessed here
A copy of the more detailed full report (pp78) is also available on our website.
We are grateful to the 14 young peer researchers who interviewed 222 young people; the charities, community groups and public sector that also contributed to the research, and to Rocket Science for their research and report.
There are several recommendations in the report. To begin with, oneRichmond is considering two of these: mentoring for young people, and a website that informs young people what’s on and where across Richmond.
We will also be looking at how we can address other areas of need identified in the report, inviting feedback from organisations working with young people, helping us to prioritise and to encourage collaborative working.
