About the conversation events

Our 'conversation events' will be taking place in October 2021. On the 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th October from 4pm -5pm we will be holding a series of webinars led by young people, sharing their stories and expertise about topics important to them.

Topics such as mental health, the future of work, social action and youth voice will be covered in a knowledge, share and learn approach.

For more information contact

Across the UK, we are all seeing daily examples of young people, practitioners and services using their strengths and talents to overcome the challenges of the Covid-19 period and look to the future.

#R4YP offers a platform to recognise you and your young people as we amplify the brilliant work of our sector.

This year we want to recognise young people's contributions, empower more young people to make a difference, and give young people opportunities to shape their future.

The awards cover a range of areas, with a focus on inspirational impact.  The ceremony will be hosted by ourselves and our partners, Clarion Housing Group, Foyer Federation, InspireChilli and the Housing Association Youth Network (HAYN).
