What is Commissioning?

Commissioning at the YLC is where money is spent to fund services for young people but as a membership organisation it is our members you have to choose what and how they want this money spent. This is why we get young people to tell us what they want during our membership events and interactive workshops.

We’ve got this money, so to ensure it’s spent wisely we work with young people and local community members to help decide where the money should go. We want to ensure this money is spent on relevant projects & services that will appeal to young people, but more importantly contribute to the development of our young members.

Your views matter, which is why we are using co-production (young people, service providers and community members working together) to decide what is needed in your local area, we then design projects and services that will have a positive impact on you and improve your local area. Together we select the best providers for the job and agree the price we will pay them for that service.

Our commissioning process is quite a unique one. We are using co-production throughout the process to ensure that young people are deciding which services should be available for young people.

If you’d like to be involved please send us an email to: info@younglambethcoop.co.uk
