We will alternate the sessions one week doing fun things with the children and the following doing things as parents whilst the children will be with registered childcare in the same building.

See more Submitted by: Charlotte Onwudiwe, London Summary Setting up and running a support network for girls aged 11-18 covering all aspects of the life of a young woman whilst using experiences and successes of older women to motivate, encourage and equip members to start early, carve out and fulfil their hopes and dreams. The principle ethos being: 'We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily difference we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee' and 'if you train a girl, you train the world!' See more Submitted by: Toni Leigh Smith, bolton Summary A healthy cafe drop-in for young people to socialise and take part in safe leisure time. We want to add a peer education element to the drop-in as young people react more positively to ideas and suggestions from fellow young people. In this case, for example, what type of healthy smoothie to try. Also we want to give young people information and help them give up smoking. What we are asking for is to recieve funding to train youth volunteers to run the healthy youth cafe (e.g. food hygiene and nutrition courses). Also we'll need funding for equipment, room hire and nutrition experts to come in from time to time to provide support.
  • 7. See more Submitted by: Soniqua Richard, London Summary To take music and Drama and make a serious and understandable film about hidden issues and pressures youngsters the age of 16-19 go through. Although this challenge is not a completely new idea I would love the oppotunity to direct and script a film using loads of volunteers to not only show adults what we go through and what we are capable of but to also show other teenagers that they are not alone through crisis and troubles. The movie would explore in depth and feeling what we wish to tell adults. I have been acting from the age of 11 but I notice that everone has a differnt talent, i would split volunteers up in sections of dancer, singers, rappers, actors, Camera and audio, editing, and even those who like writing to help with the scripting and organisation. See more Submitted by: Alice Louise Johnson, Cambridge Summary I want to expose the harrowing secret world that exists behind closed doors, & raise awareness about sex trafficking through theatre and performance. I will turn a house into a representation of a brothel, and include volunteer actors/actresses to tell the stories of real people that have been trafficked into this Country and held against their will. This is based on a performance like this that I have already directed for my studies, which has encouraged me to develop this further and produce this for public viewing. My idea is to guide the audience around the house, and make an „interactive‟ piece, which will help people to understand the nature of trafficking and that it can be stopped.

  • 8. i would like to set up a community dance project so children from the inner city area can acess a professional service wich they would never normallly have the oportunity to do because of them/there parents having a low income,turning young people into professional dancers allowing them to build there confidence,self esteem,allow them to keep fit in a active way and allow them to ge the oportunity to perform and enter competittion. See more Submitted by: Simeon Samson, Ilford Essex Summary My big idea to tackle the Big Challenge is to host an event called “R U Ready 2 Dance” This will be open to the ages of 16 - 25 year olds from our local community. We will be welcoming dancers, singers, actors, poets along with providing dance classes and work shops to the build up of the show. From this inventive show we hope to encourage more young people to unit together and become one. This is to prevent the bad social aspects we have in today‟s society. See more Submitted by: Anthony Boakye-Mensah, London Summary To initiate and manage a book reading initiative within local schools to help young people to read more and spend less time on the internet, social networking sites and TV. I have read books such as those in the autobiographical and self-help categories from a young age and find that it helps me to be imaginative about my life. Reading within a group setting can be very involving and engaging in helping individuals to formulate their own ideas and concepts. I believe the category of books used will help inspire, involve and cause those involved to become more creative. See more
  • 9. Submitted by: Karen Sutherland , Edinburgh Summary Our project looks to inspire follow disabled young people by allowing them to explore how there disability makes them feel through the medium of photography. We are very passionate this topic and volunteering on this project will allow us to develop the skills to explore body image, sexuality, disability and society‟s perception of them in a way the differs from very commonly used method of “talking therapy” We don‟t want to just talk about the issues we want to do something practical to help young people with disabilities to feel they can be themselves and that their opinion matters. We also want to show disabled young people and that non-disabled will accept them and that disabled have the power to inspire others See more Submitted by: Tori Wright, Neath Summary I want to help local teenagers get the best start in life. I have been working in a school in a very disadvantaged area, and want to help them help other children in the area. Their local library is under threat, and I want to provide an alternative after school in the school library, with the students as staff. I want them to create storybags to use reading in the community, a courtyard for the library, a functioning garden, and baby and toddler groups held in the library. This will help them to establish a basis for a future career. See more Submitted by: Laura Sharp, leeds Summary To bring body and self confidence back to the youth of today, with the internet becoming more powerful than ever it is all too easy for people to rely on it as a means of communication to the outside world and even create a second profile and image resulting in self rejection. I want to
  • 10. gather a team of volunteers and do a series of photoshoots with young individuals communicating through a photograph of themselves that would be exhibited and act as an expression and inspiration for the young and provide an insight and better understanding for the older generation See more Submitted by: Jennifer Daffin, Newport Summary To create a group for young LGBT people run by young LGBT people that provides support and advice on issues relating to being young and gay, for example, with coming out and homophobic bullying. The group will provide a „safe space‟ for YLGBTP to meet with other YLGBTP to discuss issues affecting them and how to bring about changes. This will be virtually, via a group website and literally, through locally organised groups. The groups will then mobilise to challenge the issues affecting them and campaign for changes to be made. See more Submitted by: Babatunde A.K.A. Williams, London Summary We set up a group called New Turn, a think tank. Our aim is to get in speakers/debaters/lecturers to break down key and topical issues for a young audience, allowing us to make up our minds in an environment that encourages discussion and disagreement as opposed to one that encourages a narrow mindset. At New Turn we wish to show that young people are not incapable of engaging, rather it is about time the “system” engaged with them. Therefore, we wish to publish policy papers that reflect the way young people are affected by society, ultimately better informing policy makers. See more Submitted by: Luke Flegg, Brighton Summary
  • 11. to inspire other young people and students to provide solutions to improving our education system. Young people themselves hold the answers to resolving the UK‟s education crisis. We (group of 15-26 yr olds) want to create a web forum to collate ideas from young people across the country, run workshops to engage young people to get them to think analytically about their educational experience and finally to create a documentary to share the ideas we uncover with a broad audience, to hopefully engender change. See www.SOTdoc.com See more Submitted by: Yusuf Ahmed Sheylila, London Summary We want to have a group for young people living independently or in foster families to learn important skills like cooking, shopping, budgeting, gardening, how to eat healthily, how to make a CV and how to get jobs and work experience. This project would be for young people aged 15-24, who are getting ready to or are already living independently. We will have group sessions to share information and learn new skills.

This project is targeted at young people that are unemployed and are not in formal education and are between the ages of 16-21.

They will help out with administration, leaflet distribution, monitoring and evaluation etc. See more Submitted by: Rui Jorge Octavio , Middlesex Summary To deliver "Lessons On Life", a youth-led life skills programme for young people which aims to inculcate the virtues of learning. In disengaged areas it is extremely challenging for young people to fully know and comprehend the steps they must take towards success. This programme hopes to solve this issue by equipping young people to pass the challenges of life, addressing topics such as communication, presentation and relationship management. Using young role models to deliver programmes makes the message trustworthy, thus inspiring the audience to fully engage in learning.

The games will be 6 minutes long and half court so their will be two games on at once. It is played in a competition format where it starts with group stages than to knockouts stages. The participants will be split into different sections aimed at the age categories of under 14, 16, 19 with boys and girls in separate leagues. My event will also double as a careers convention. See more Submitted by: Florelle Adat, London Summary The Street Law project! We know that young people have valid opinions and can argue them as well as any Lawyer out there, so I‟m giving young people the chance to do just that. All young people deserve the chance to experience a legal career, without being told that it is too expensive or too difficult. Basic knowledge of the Law is invaluable at any age. As well as learning the Law that affects them the most and learning to form legal arguments, young people can test their legal skills in the Street Law Court‟s very own MOCK TRIALS. See more Submitted by: Ceri Denise Davies, West Midlands Summary 'More Mascots Please' which includes my special creation „Mintie‟ will hopefully have national reach and be recognisable for representing the qualities of „courage, commitment and challenges‟. I would like to use mascots as a fundraising tool to go into schools and hospices to support children. I have had contact with mascots such as Bearemy and Pudsey and feel that they are great tools to get people together. However, I had limited control over other people‟s mascots and will develop my own so I can use it to go into hospitals to entertain young people who are going through difficult times.

See more Submitted by: Mikel Ameen, london Summary To create a forum physical & online for young people to actively express themselves in their chosen art forms. given them an opportunity to artistically express by embracing their natural talents and inspiring them to use it in order to reach their full potential in life whatever their goals may be. through training and showcasing they will see and feel BIG CHALLENGES ACHIEVED! See more Submitted by: Liz Shepherd, Bath Summary My big idea to tackle the Big Challenge is to create a youth café central to Frome where young people aged 11-18 can go to simply hang out. It will provide a safe environment for them, keeping them off the streets, providing someone to talk to if they are in need, but most importantly a place to escape from the hustle and bustle of living in Frome and relax to live music, a game of pool, or just a chat over a glass of Coke. But get this, it will be set up and run by just us teenagers! Seeing as the adults have ignored our needs so far, let‟s set this up and prove to them we are capable of something great!

We want to add a peer education element to the drop-in as young people react more positively to ideas and suggestions from fellow young people. In this case, for example, what type of healthy smoothie to try. Also we want to give young people information and help them give up smoking. What we are asking for is to recieve funding to train youth volunteers to run the healthy youth cafe (e.g. food hygiene and nutrition courses). Also we'll need funding for equipment, room hire and nutrition experts to come in from time to time to provide support.

Although this challenge is not a completely new idea I would love the oppotunity to direct and script a film using loads of volunteers to not only show adults what we go through and what we are capable of but to also show other teenagers that they are not alone through crisis and troubles. The movie would explore in depth and feeling what we wish to tell adults. I have been acting from the age of 11 but I notice that everone has a differnt talent, i would split volunteers up in sections of dancer, singers, rappers, actors, Camera and audio, editing, and even those who like writing to help with the scripting and organisation.

Young people in cafe, leisure, etc. all good, but is this really what they want? A film will certainly bring out what it is they really want, in their own words! Good luck Submitted by: Alice Louise Johnson Summary I want to expose the harrowing secret world that exists behind closed doors, & raise awareness about sex trafficking through theatre and performance. I will turn a house into a representation of a brothel, and include volunteer actors/actresses to tell the stories of real people that have been trafficked into this Country and held against their will. This is based on a performance like this that I have already directed for my studies, which has encouraged me to develop this further and produce this for public viewing. My idea is to guide the audience around the house, and make an „interactive‟ piece, which will help people to understand the nature of trafficking and that it can be stopped.

The project that you have chosen is a serious problem for many people, being able to research and make a difference would be a great achievement. There are many issues surrouding this problem and many victims don't know how or where to get help from. This too is a side of society all must/should be aware of. Alice is passionate and very creative, any opportunity given to her would certainly have a positive impact. 9-Aug-2010 9.06AM Emma Wicks Says... I think this is a great idea and would really open up the eyes of those that like to pretend we live in a perfect society where everyone is treated the same.

Awesome!!!! Would love to see this in action 6-Aug-2010 10.59AM Graham Poter Says... I was asked by Alice to be a performer in this production and i was very exited to be a part of it. There where loads of people that had volentered to help and this realy gave the piece confidence. I was also lucky enough to go through a rehursal and I was Amazed at how it was all put together and how far the actors would go to make you feel that you where really there.

This project has been throughly created and demostrated through a passion to expose and examine the effects of trafficking and human rights. This project is also an amazing piece of theatre and performance and many people are shocked and educated about the real effects of trafficking. However this project is sensitive and informative about the real issues that are being explored. Alice's performance is a great piece of theatre.

We will be welcoming dancers, singers, actors, poets along with providing dance classes and work shops to the build up of the show. From this inventive show we hope to encourage more young people to unit together and become one. This is to prevent the bad social aspects we have in today‟s society.

Submitted by: Anthony Boakye-Mensah Summary To initiate and manage a book reading initiative within local schools to help young people to read more and spend less time on the internet, social networking sites and TV. I have read books such as those in the autobiographical and self-help categories from a young age and find that it helps me to be imaginative about my life. Reading within a group setting can be very involving and engaging in helping individuals to formulate their own ideas and concepts. I believe the category of books used will help inspire, involve and cause those involved to become more creative. Comments on this entry 11-Aug-2010 2.53PM Isaac Frempong Says...

Excellent opportunity for young people to explore their body image and sexuality which is an issue that affects all young people but if you have a disability these issues are far more complex given the attitudinal barriers and stereotypes that exist within our society which quite often result in disabled youngster feeling isolated and confused. Good luck Karen you certainly have my vote! 5-Aug-2010 2.54PM Den Says... Great Idea. Hope you are successful. 5-Aug-2010 2.38PM Colin Brown, Rebustours. Says...

Fantastic Karen - the best of luck 5-Aug-2010 10.23AM Kevin Smith Says... I think this is an interesting project as too often treatment and support for people with disabilities lacks any sense of creativity. This project appears to offer creativity and a sense of autonomy and exploration, which can open up other possibilities in the lives of the young disabled people involved. 5-Aug-2010 10.20AM Tom Dundas Says...

Great Project. Good Luck 4-Aug-2010 11.17PM Khalid Raza Says... I support this project tender, because it challenges perception, challenges the status quo and breaks down barriers. We are all “disabled in one way or another”.
  • 77. 4-Aug-2010 10.33PM Colin Cameron Says... This project sounds excellent and a real oppotunity for young disabled people to address issues of identity on their own terms. The constant media representation of impairment as something that can only be experienced negatively - either to be struggled with and triumphed over or as a source of pathetic vulnerability - makes the business of just getting on with life as a disabled young person an often confusing and isolating experience. Just being yourself, as you are, isn't given as an option. 4-Aug-2010 10.32PM Laura Says... A fantastic idea to create opportunities to change perceptions, develop creativity and expression amongst those who are sometimes sadly ignored by society... 4-Aug-2010 10.31PM Patrick Thistlewood Says...

Totally agree Karen well done 4-Aug-2010 8.36PM mark Says... very insightful project: good luck with it! 4-Aug-2010 5.53PM Chris Hayworth Says... Having known Karen for a number of months through our work with various events and organisations I would like to say not only is Karen an inspiration to young disabled people but also to people of all ages both with and with out disabilities. I firmly believe any investment in Karen would be a good investment and would empower her to take her ideas forward and help change perspectives and attitudes to disability
  • 78. Submitted by: Tori Wright Summary I want to help local teenagers get the best start in life. I have been working in a school in a very disadvantaged area, and want to help them help other children in the area. Their local library is under threat, and I want to provide an alternative after school in the school library, with the students as staff. I want them to create storybags to use reading in the community, a courtyard for the library, a functioning garden, and baby and toddler groups held in the library. This will help them to establish a basis for a future career. Comments on this entry 11-Aug-2010 8.35AM Natalie moorhouse Says...

  • 86. To create a group for young LGBT people run by young LGBT people that provides support and advice on issues relating to being young and gay, for example, with coming out and homophobic bullying. The group will provide a „safe space‟ for YLGBTP to meet with other YLGBTP to discuss issues affecting them and how to bring about changes. This will be virtually, via a group website and literally, through locally organised groups. The groups will then mobilise to challenge the issues affecting them and campaign for changes to be made.

Our aim is to get in speakers/debaters/lecturers to break down key and topical issues for a young audience, allowing us to make up our minds in an environment that encourages discussion and disagreement as opposed to one that encourages a narrow mindset. At New Turn we wish to show that young people are not incapable of engaging, rather it is about time the “system” engaged with them. Therefore, we wish to publish policy papers that reflect the

Submitted by: Rui Jorge Octavio Summary To deliver "Lessons On Life", a youth-led life skills programme for young people which aims to inculcate the virtues of learning. In disengaged areas it is extremely challenging for young people to fully know and comprehend the steps they must take towards success. This programme hopes to solve this issue by equipping young people to pass the challenges of life, addressing topics such as communication, presentation and relationship management. Using young role models to deliver programmes makes the message trustworthy, thus inspiring the audience to fully engage in learning.

Submitted by: Kathy Marshall Summary I want to create a garden using wildflowers- to inspire people to look closely at native plants, appreciate them, grow them. We‟d take our garden to a big flower show – BBC Gardeners‟ World Live at the NEC, where it could be seen by 100,000 visitors and potentially millions of TV viewers. We‟d grow plants for the garden ourselves and get the community involved in growing them too. After the show, we‟d plant the garden in a permanent site in a community garden to be enjoyed for years to come - a great place for young people to learn or relax.

  • 158. 8-Aug-2010 6.54AM @gardenhero Says... A fantastic idea Kathy; gardening is one of the best ways to bring people together...best of luck! 8-Aug-2010 12.30AM pv Says... A long time ago I was peripherally involved in a project to provide a garden for a drop-in centre, for kids in Newham, London. It's amazing how many inner city kids have never seen wild plants and flowers, nor any of the creepy crawly or slithery things that live in the ground around them. Bring the countryside to the inner cities - a great idea. 7-Aug-2010 6.24PM Linda Says... Lovely idea!!! 7-Aug-2010 5.12PM Clair Horner Says... This is an excellant idea.
