    1. 1. The Challenge Network and NCS National Trust/February 2012
    2. 2. National Trust/ Feb 2012 About The Challenge The Challenge Network is a charity with a mission Why we exist Over the last 50 years, the amount that we trust each other has declined rapidly. The UK now has the lowest levels of trust and belonging in Europe. This collapse in trust damages our young the most. UNICEF found that young people in the UK have lower confidence , weaker relationships and less civic engagement than in all other developed countries.** Children need a nurturing, trusting environment to develop as young adults. Without this, our young are struggling to mature into adults. The Challenge Network believes we can rebuild trust in our society by helping young people to come of age. Our mission is to inspire and connect Young People to strengthen their communities.
    3. 3.

    7. 7. National Trust/ Feb 2012 Experiences of first year delivery Initial Feedback from Young people Faysal Hamzah. Rochdale, North West England. I didn’t really know what to expect of The Challenge at first. A leaflet came through our door and the outdoor stuff on it caught my attention. The best bit has been the whole thing, it has all been my favourite but maybe meeting new people has been the best, like Danni here (he is sat next to Danielle Scothern) because we didn’t know each other before but have got really close. Doing the Dragon’s Den was difficult, I have never done anything like that before and was pretty nervous. I think we have shown that teenagers aren’t all bad but that we can do positive things too.
    8. 8. National Trust/ Feb 2012 engaging young people and local communities Capturing and reflecting a community and cities sense of place <ul><li>Work across London, Birmingham and Manchester. England's three biggest Cities. </li></ul><ul><li>We exist to connect and inspire people to strengthen their communities . </li></ul><ul><li>Part of building stronger communities is connecting people to the places where they live. </li></ul><ul><li>How do we do this? </li></ul><ul><li>Through connecting people : </li></ul><ul><li>- Work with existing groups and charities, to link them up through young people </li></ul><ul><li>- Mix of YP </li></ul><ul><li>- Team Challenge: Community Surveys, Linking young people with community groups. Eg Jinnah centre, Jigsaw, Banksfield, Showcase </li></ul><ul><li>2) Through connecting YP to a place </li></ul><ul><li>- Use of public buildings as venues – colleges, schools, community centres, green spaces </li></ul>

    10. 10. Reflecting the sense of the city in your Challenges National Trust/ Feb 2012 <ul><li>Historically this has been as a bi-product of the programmes we run – gained though things like community survey, guiding YP through coming up with a campaign they would like to run. </li></ul><ul><li>Focus more on individual and how they can create positive change – in any way. Sometimes YP choose local issues that reflect sense of city, sometimes not. </li></ul>
    11. 11. National Trust/ Feb 2012 Inspiring people to get involved and reaching new audiences <ul><li>Two main audiences: YP and community partners </li></ul><ul><li>1) YP: </li></ul><ul><li>Before programme </li></ul><ul><li>Strong Marketing </li></ul><ul><li>Brand </li></ul><ul><li>Links with schools </li></ul><ul><li>Focus on CV improvement </li></ul><ul><li>During programme </li></ul><ul><li>Focus on reflection </li></ul><ul><li>Carefully planned curriculum </li></ul><ul><li>Inspirational partners – that young people can relate to. </li></ul><ul><li>Pushing boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>After programme </li></ul><ul><li>Challenge with Distinction </li></ul><ul><li>Regular events with friends invited </li></ul><ul><li>Chance to be involved in designing the programme </li></ul><ul><li>2) Community partners </li></ul><ul><li>Importance of working in partnership – mutual gain </li></ul><ul><li>Chance to engage YP in your work </li></ul>
    12. 12. National Trust/ Feb 2012 Some learnings: How can the National Trust… <ul><li>Understand the 'sense of place' in cities and urban areas and reflect it in what we do - and develop offers that are engaging for young people who live in cities? </li></ul><ul><li>Make it appealing to young people by relating it to their life and current needs </li></ul><ul><li>Most positive results were when YP could see clear impact. Least were when YP couldn’t see how their role was important or see a clear need (Haigh Hall) </li></ul><ul><li>People focused – main issues were community cohesion, racism, inclusion etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Fun </li></ul><ul><li>Passionate causes </li></ul><ul><li>Aid employability – offer skills </li></ul><ul><li>Ownership – ask young people what they want! What do they understand of ‘sense of place’? PPT mapping. </li></ul>
