For the past 12 months we have been working on a participation project in the Midlands with our colleagues in TUSLA. The project has been based around Youth Voice and Participation and has been completed through the medium of Art. The project has been extremely successful with the young people recently presenting their project at the TUSLA Participation Conference in April. Jim Gibson, TUSLA Chief Operations Manager was very impressed with the young people and invited them to TUSLA Headquarters for lunch. Jim used the opportunity to present the group with the Investing In Children Membership Award. This is a great achievement for the group and the staff from YAP and TUSLA that have worked together in partnership to ensure these young people use their voice.
