Youth Social Action Report, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, 2019.

This report shares the inspirational stories of 2 Youth Social Action teams in Worksop, who wanted to instigate change and tell the decision makers of their community what their town would be like if everyone did Take Five.

Funded by the #iwill campaign and supported by The Nottinghamshire Community Foundation and the Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, this report is a celebration of what happens when children are given the opportunities to share their voices, ideas and visions for the future of their communities.

It is a celebration of 18 children from 3 different primary schools in Worksop who came together to collaborate with each other over this special project of presenting to local, key decision makers in Nottinghamshire.

Sparken Hill Academy, Worksop Priory C of E Primary Academy and Sir Edmund Hillary Primary school were all part of ‘Take Five’ from its very inception in 2015 and have been pivotal in helping Each Amazing Breath develop a child-led resilience building programme, suitable for schools and communities everywhere.

The report finds that when children are given the responsibility to be voices for their peers, they step up and shine. It also shows the willingness of local senior decision makers to make space and listen to the children whom they safeguard, which in itself is a celebration. The report shares the voice of Councillor Wallace, who states that “Nottinghamshire is growing some amazing active citizens and it is clear that Take Five was helping them fell strong and confident”.

We hope you enjoy this report, which celebrates the positivity, resilience, strength of the children as they help adults understand that it is possible to feel safe, strong, balanced and to be able to self regulate (as children and adults).
