Educating All 27 Jan 2017
Martha and Terry are two young graduates from Manchester who are Reclaim Young Leaders and alumni. Educating All stemmed from their experiences of a shared sense of alienation at University coupled with a lack of support. It is a youth led research study that aims to explore the institutional and personal barriers faced by working class students at the top universities in the UK. Research has been conducted and was published in November 2016 and stimulated a great deal of interest. Universities have asked the team to flesh-out the research recommendations to improve recruitment and retention of working class students. Educating All will also widen the dissemination of their report and develop a 'toolkit' for access officers at universities to use when working class students join their institutions.
Reign Pioneers are a group of young women (19-25) from Manchester who are survivors of child sexual exploitation (CSE). They plan to provide front line staff (social workers, police, teachers etc.) with effective, honest, survivor-led training about the realities of CSE. Based on their own experiences, they know what questions staff should ask young survivors, how to build trust, what works and what doesn't. They will use their insider knowledge and experience, passion, and credibility with young people and within their communities, to ensure that survivors no longer feel alone or are made to feel ashamed - harbouring a dirty secret. They want to ensure that services are led and informed by young people who have lived through the experience of CSE.
Contribution to organisational development 27 Feb 2017
With a vision of a society in which working class young people are positively seen, authentically heard and can lead meaningful social change, RECLAIM supports non-traditional and disruptive leaders from pressurized communities. The methodology of the programme ensures young people develop confidence and are self-reflective and critical thinkers. Funding will support strategic planning and operational development to support growth ambitions.
Just For Kids Law plans to grow impact through its policy and influencing work, by building on success of recent campaigns, and by advocating for a new Youth Justice Legal Centre. It aims to set up an office in East London to respond to increasing demand from the area and will pilot the Advocacy Year programme that will increase local level support for young people.
Just for Kids Law is interested in learning lessons from their campaigning and communications activities in relation to a key legal case on student finance for young people whose immigration status meant they were unable to access student loans: R(Tigere) v Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills  UKSC 57. The study will examine the ways in which an organisation can plan a strategic litigation campaign on a particular issue and assess the benefits and risks associated with these activities.
