SpeakOut @Headstart Kent allows young people involved with HeadStart Kent to come together to support the co-production of the programme.
Young people are given the opportunity to lead on aspects including the:
- MoodSpark website development
- evaluation of aspects of the programme and Pay it Forward grant scheme
- participation of the recruitment and commissioning of the programme.
Staff regularly join the group to get feedback, share information and consult about the programme. Attendees can include:
- Evaluations Officer
- Marketing and Communications Officer
- Data Team
- Senior Managers.
Regular district meetings with young people are available to support local co-production. Feedback from the meetings is then fed into our central SpeakOut @HeadStart group. Any young person attending the local groups can then have the opportunity to join our central group.
