On the 12th July, the Humber Violence Prevention Partnership (VPP) will hold its second Hope Hack. This event will provide a unique opportunity for the young people of Grimsby and North-East Lincolnshire to inform leading policy makers on key issues that will help them to make their community feel fairer and safer. This involves young people coming up with solutions to issues, rather than looking at the symptoms and causes.
The Hope Hacks have been designed by the Hope Collective, an organisation formed to support the campaign for Damilola Taylor, a 10-year-old boy who wrote of his hope to change the world, shortly before his untimely death in 2000. The Hope Collective aim to establish real change that enables the UK’s most vulnerable communities to be free from poverty, violence and discrimination. They do this by working with young people to create long-term change, amplifying their voices and focusing on their hopes for the future.
We’re offering schools, colleges and youth groups the chance to bring up to 15 young people (aged between 16-25). Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a group booking form.
