Our Projects

Personal and Social Health Education Consultation 

RYV is taking a leading role on a local authority-wide consultation on PSHE with Education Scotland, Youth Services and Renfrewshire Council. The consultation is now at the implementation stage within all 11 secondary schools in Renfrewshire putting us at the forefront of the national Health and Wellbeing review.  

 

Our Aim – is to work with young people on the Health and Well Being/PSHE curriculum (content and delivery) through peer-led focus groups, to construct ’PSE Framework for PSE in Renfrewshire‘ that will ensure consistency of learning experiences across Renfrewshire.

 

Participatory Budgeting/Celebrating Renfrewshire Youth Steering Group 

Renfrewshire Council is working with us to develop the participatory budgeting model through a youth steering group. PB will be used to administer the new Celebrating Renfrewshire fund (previously the Youth Challenge fund) in Renfrewshire that used to reside under the Local Area Committee's remit.

 

Renfrewshire Youth Voice is taking a key role via supporting and facilitating the council in its work with the steering group. The group developed the application for funds, promoted the fund, gave guidance and support throughout the application process and planned and ran a delivery event. Now in the evaluation stages, the group is looking into 2020 to see how PB will develop even further in Renfrewshire.

Positive About Youth Awards 2019

Work is already underway for our 9th Positive About Youth Awards. This is where we showcase all that there is to be positive about the achievements and generosity of youth in Renfrewshire. 

 

The nominations for this year's awards are now closed. We look forward to celebrating our award winners on the 1st of November.
