“The Participation People are a ‘deliverer’ with strategic vision and an eye for detail. They are a pleasure to work with and will always come to you with solutions not problems. Their passion, hard work and positive attitude would be great assets in any area of work.” – Shanara Matin, Tower Hamlets Council

  • We provide evaluation services of youth engagement structures
    • We evaluated the student ambassador programme at the University of Hertfordshire. We worked with school staff, school students and University students to evaluate the current offer for students at Hertfordshire. We did this by providing highly innovative focus groups, phone interviews and e-surveys, keeping costs low, but impact high!
  • We provide interactive, engaging and motivational public speaking
  • We provide resource-writing expertise
    • We are the leading Youth Engagement Company in the UK. To prove our point, we often write about it! Recently we have written and published national best practice, including:
      • How to set up and run a Young Mayor scheme
      • How to run Youth Elections
      • How to set up and run a UK Youth Parliament Scheme in a Local Authority
      • How to set up a Work Experience placement
      • Youth Participation National Guidance for the Local Government Information Unit
      • How to involve young people in formal meetings
  • We prepare you for inspections
    • Recently, we supported Wandsworth in their Ofsted Safeguarding Inspection. Engagement of young people stood out as “outstanding”.



Companies – and adults – often need to know what young people think.

“I have commissioned The Participation People for project work on a number of occasions and always had fantastic results – they get the job done with minimal fuss. Would absolutely work with them again.” – Matthew Upton, The Campaign Company
