Infocow - The Background

652
-1

Published on

Infocow connects you with useful stuff to help take control of life - sites, stories, information and inspiration. It’s made for and created by young people, aged around 14-19.

Infocow links to hundreds of different websites and sources of information that can help make positive changes, whether that’s finding out what to do after GCSEs, or what the first steps are to leaving home.

Presentation given by Kieron Kirkland at the Infocow launch event in London, July 8th 2010.
