This is an exciting time for young people to get involved in sharing their views on the things that matter and make a real difference.

Where we are so far
The idea for a YPN came through some work with a young person who was a Learning Disability Strategy champion. To make this idea happen we started off with three fab workshops in the West, Ipswich and Lowerstoft where we worked with 58 young people through 5 schools and colleges. While munching on chocolate fingers and satsumas we talked about - What is important to the lives of young people? What they are interested in? What a network is and how the network should work?
Here are some students at the session in Lowerstoft college
We were told...
We also held a logo competition, with lots of stunning entries. Well done to everyone who took part- watch this space as we will be announcing the winner in September. The winner will have their logo made into a design and used in the future.
