Event Details

We’re tired of talking to you,

when will you do something?’

 

Kaz Stuart, Head of Research, Brathay Trust

Over the last twenty years, there has been an increasing drive for young people to participate in decision making processes in organisations and local authorities, and to have a voice and lead role in evaluation and research activities. Brathay Trust is a youth work organisation with 65 years’ heritage of youth development. Participatory practice is a central value embedded in Brathay as an organisation, and a skill that often leads to commissioned work. This paper will present four examples of participatory practice that we have been commissioned to deliver:

a)    Delivering a youth council across one local authority

b)    Delivering a service for looked after young people in one local authority

c)    Researching the experience of young offenders for a youth offending team

d)    Researching the lived experiences of gang-involved young people for a city council

The paper will problematise the extent to which any of these participatory contracts represent participatory practice, and situate this in the wider context of engaging young people meaningfully in society amidst discourses that demonise, victimise, or silence youth voice.

Kaz Stuart is the Head of Research at Brathay Trust. She specialises in participatory action research and creative research methods. Her PhD developed a model of collaborative practice that recognised the centrality of service users’ positionality in the success of multi-agency work.
