Our Strategic Group

The Youth Alliance holds a bi-monthly strategic Steering Group meeting to discuss local trends and themes in Derby City and to establish the best course of action for us to take collaboratively to reduce harm and risks to our children and young people. We discuss funding opportunities to enable us to continue our work, and use local intelligence from our own industries to get a bigger picture of what is happening in our city. We work together on individual children and place referrals, and co-ordinate projects within the community where there are children in need of our support.

To find out more about the work we have done, please read our latest Evaluation report.
