ReDesign is a partnership project with All Change, commissioned by Islington Council’s Play and Youth Team, supporting young people to make a difference in their community.
This project employed teams of young people aged 16-25 – chosen based on their areas of expertise – as Young Creatives to work with us and cross-sector professionals to explore, ‘redesign’ and pilot new projects to tackle local challenges around access to employment. The first of these projects used creative workshop methods to develop a new model of paid work experience designed to suit young people. In 2019, three young people aged 16-25 undertook pilot paid opportunities with social enterprises in our community at Impact Hub Islington to test this model. The project saw huge successes and learning is being shared with local employers and employment services, with the aim of improving outcomes for local young people entering the world of work.
