Playtrail Youth Forum:

Our strapline:

'Engage, listen & Influence' 

Our Purpose:  

We are a group of young people with disabilities who are working together to make a positive change by including everyone, encouraging others to get involved, speak up, undertake new challenges, have fun and learn new things.

We hope to empower other young people to utilise their voice whilst influencing and engaging with decision makers in order to promote inclusion for all and have the voices of young people with disabilities heard.

 

Some of the wonderful work carried out by Playtrail Youth Forum:

Inclusion Fest 2019: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUSyqgxeSG4&t=26s

Inclusion Fest is a one day festival promoting all things inclusion, this will consist of 2 stages allowing local and upcoming bands, performers and singers the chance to showcase their talents. In addition to this, we will be providing a variety of workshops/ pop up performance which will consist of drumming, Dj-ing, comedy and dance.

The HUB Mural Project:

Playtrail Youth Forum members consulted with all young people who attend Liberty Consortium's project and asked them to draw, design or help create a new mural at the entrance of The HUB which highlights and showcases the wonderful work we do. This project was in partnership with U.V Arts and adds a bright and welcoming vibe to the HUB entrance. It shows all visitors, young people and their families the great activities and opportunities young people have at Liberty Consortium programmes. 

Playtrail Youth Forum - 'Spooky Fest':

'Spooky Fest' was a 1 day event designed, managed and delivered by Playtrail Youth Forum members. This event ran during Covid-19 restrictions which meant our youth forum members wanted to help all Liberty Consortium young people engage in halloween activities and help them get into the halloween spirit. This 1 day event consisted of 3 halloween themed workshops which provided young people with disabilities the opportunity to engage in activities such as halloween trick & treats, baking, haunted games, arts & crafts and halloween themed dance performances.
