Doncaster Young Advisors

Doncaster Young Advisors help organisations and local services improve their products and delivery to make them more young people friendly

Summary

Doncaster Young Advisors are a newly formed team of young people aged 16-24 who bring unique expertise and knowledge about being young to influence strategic planning, decision-making and marketing within Doncaster’s Young People’s services.

Our role is to help organisations and local services improve their products and delivery and to make them more young people friendly. We are employed and co-ordinated by Doncaster Council and use a variety of methods to ensure that young people are given the chance to be meaningfully involved in service design, delivery and evaluation.

We understand we all have our own strengths and weaknesses as a team, so we continually work to learn from each other and widen our own individual skill sets, while still understanding we don’t have to perfect at everything. A skill that all of us share is the ability to communicate and work well with fellow young people, not only as a young person but in a professional manner during focus groups and consultations.
