Mini-Hack Sessions: Community, Racism & Diversity and Education

Merseyside Youth Association’s RAISE Team are working in partnership with the Targeted services for young people’s team in Liverpool City Council to host a series of ”mini-hacks”.

Funded by Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership, these consultation sessions are aimed at young people aged 14-24 working in collaboration with professionals to discuss various themes. “Mini-hacks” are deep-dive enquiries into a topic.

The feedback from this session will feed into a national project by the Hope Collective. Formed to support the 20th-anniversary legacy campaign for Damilola Taylor, the Hope Collective aim to establish real change that enables UK’s most vulnerable communities to be free from poverty, violence, and discrimination. 

Hope Collective will use audio-visual content from the Hope Hack programme to form a ‘Reimagined Report’, which will be released exactly one year ahead of the next general election and presented to Downing Street. Locally, we are seeking Children’s Champions in positions of power who can provide hope to young residents and give weight to their voices, positively influencing strategies, actions and decisions.

A £20 voucher will be given to cover contributors’ time, and refreshments will be provided.
