Our co-design service involves young people creating, designing and delivering solutions in collaboration with organisations.
Young people have a significant role to play in encouraging organisations and communities to adopt a more collaborative culture, focusing resources to effectively meet the needs of individuals and communities.
Are you ready to engage in the tried and tested Young Scot co-design process with young people?
The Young Scot Co-design Process
Co-design is about much more than just understanding their issues it’s about giving young people the power to create real change to policy, practice and services. Co-design goes beyond consultation, it engages young people as equals, with shared power and resources.
By engaging in a Co-design project, you are tapping into young people’s insight, enthusiasm and honesty to find out what they really want and how to make it happen It can help you to develop informed insights, ideas, recommendations and solutions for policy and practice.
The Young Scot Co-design Service ties into key policy areas including:
- United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child
- Public Service Reform/Christie Commission
- Community Empowerment Act
- Getting It Right for Every Child
- Scottish Government Education Service Review – Rights and Participation Strategies
- National Youth Work Strategy
Over the past six years we've tackled a wide range of topics and worked with hundreds of partners. Want to find out more?
How does Co-design work?
Every Co-design project has a bespoke plan to meet your objectives. Within the model we typically use and blend a range of approaches that are much greater than the sum of parts.
The Young Scot Co-design model can help you ‘flip the radar’, to let you see what’s on the horizon from the perspective of young people who are experts of their own experience.
