Around 25% of the UK population is under 19. However, research commissioned by Grosvenor Britain & Ireland in 2020 revealed that 89% of young adults aged 16-18 have never been asked their opinion about neighbourhood change and just 8% had attended a public consultation.
A new national youth engagement toolkit, Voice. Opportunity.

Backed on launch by over 20 developers, councils, designers, youth and sports organisations it can give young people aged 11-18 an equal voice and influence in the way that places are built and managed.
