St Basils homeless charity aim to have young people involved in all areas of the company. To help achieve this, St Basils set up scrutiny panels in 2016 to enable service users to scrutinise the company and give feedback for areas of improve, to ensure positive experiences of young people. St Basils deliver four scrutiny panels in the following areas; Support, Learning skills and work, repairs and local areas.
Team Youth Voice were asked to re-designed St Basils scrutiny panels, to ensure panels are appropriate, supportive and accessible to as many young people as possible. Members participated in group tasks discussing local issues that affect their day to day lives and offered recommendations to support young people to overcome these issues. During this session questions were directed to the Senior Leadership Team as well as Managers, these were answered lived allowing Youth Voice members to receive immediate feedback for their design plans. Feedback from the session will be collated and devised into a new programme implemented throughout St Basils in the coming year.
