My Place believes that young people have the ideas, talent, and energy to be community leaders. That communities thrive when local people are at the heart of the decisions that affect them.
Just 11% of young people have been asked about the future of their neighbourhood. Yet 97% want the chance to get involved. This project is addressing this through
commissioning young people to become community advocates and connecting them with local decision-makers to co-create change in their area.
The My Place Shopfront, at 229 Seven Sisters Road, will be co-designed by young people and local designers. It will be managed by the young people themselves, giving them a literal stake in the ground.
If you are aged between 13 – 19 and would like to get involved please visit finsburyparktrust.co.uk/my-place for more information.
