On 12 November, organisations working to support young people across Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes will come together at a free conference at The Gateway in Aylesbury to discuss the important issues affecting young people.
The conference, hosted by young people’s charity Action4Youth will include a discussion on the challenges & opportunities for young people now and in the future, led by the CEO of UK Youth, Anna Smee; a debate on the issues surrounding childhood obesity, headed by Dr Max Davie, Officer for Health Promotion at the Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health; and a number of workshops on topics including governance, best practise working with volunteers and gender complexity issues in young people.
Closing with a panel session including Milton Keynes Community Foundation, the National Lottery Community Fund, The Rothschild Foundation and The Clare Foundation, there will be an opportunity for attendees to find out more about funding opportunities and how to apply.
Jenifer Cameron, CEO of Action4Youth explains: “We have some of the most experienced and influential experts in their sectors speaking at our 2019 conference and look forward to some interesting and engaging conversations about some of the biggest issues that impact on the young people in our society today.
“Following our 2018 conference, which focused on the mental health of young people, we hope to dig deeper into the causes and effects of mental ill health, linking into the impact of some of the topics on this years’ agenda.”
The conference is free to attend but places are limited and the event is usually oversubscribed so an early booking is recommended.
