The problem:

Decisions are being made on behalf of young people everyday, we need more inclusive leadership where young people are part of the decision making process.

Our solution:

The West Midlands Combined Authority commissioned Beatfreeks to recruit and manage the creation of its first young board, the second of its kind in the UK. This Young Combined Authority [link to twitter page twitter.com/wmyoungboard] brings together a diverse group of 15-25 year-olds to help the WMCA ‘see the world through the eyes’ of young people, to build political leadership capacity, and to involve young people in the devolution agenda.
