Young Expert Groups throughout Angus
Our participation worker facilitates YEG’s (Young Expert Groups) and participation work throughout Angus allowing children and young people to have a voice and speak out against domestic abuse. We believe children and young people in Angus are the young experts when it comes to children and young people and the issues they face in their local communities, including what is happening at home, on the street, in school and in their own relationships.
