Make Space Youth Review

Throughout 2006-07 4Children’s strategic youth programme Make Space, run in Make Space Logopartnership with Nestlé, led a coalition of young people, teachers, parents and youth workers calling for urgent investment by Government in facilities for young people in communities.

The Make Space Youth Review undertook a consultation with 16,000 young people, carried out via a roadshow visiting every region of the county – ensuring that the campaign truly represented the voice of young people.

The final report, launched by youth icon Lily Allen and campaigner Oona King on 11 July 2007 in London, was presented by young people to Prime Minister Gordon Brown at Downing Street. It marked the culmination of a year of lobbying and campaigning aimed at Ministers and officials to shape and develop the new deal for young people.
