Little Voices Project
YoVo members have teamed up with Observatory on Human Rights to ensure the rights of children and young people in care are respected, protected and fulfilled. YoVo members raised issues that concern children and young people in care and carried out research which they presented to Councillors in NPT. YoVo are now working towards changing practice and improving services to children and young people. An awful lot of pizza was demolished as well!
Yovo’s next project is to help raise awareness of Dementia. Yovo are planning to work with a local care home for the elderly and organise game nights and movie nights. The young people have been awarded a grant from NPTCVS to buy board games to play with the elderly and are even planning a number of cake sales to raise money for a dementia charity. We’ll be learning budgeting skills, working out profit and loss, advertising, sales and lots more.
