YOUTH ENGAGEMENT IN ALPERTON
Our client was the developers St George. St George have a new development under construction called "Future Northfields." Our job was to engage young people in the area to understand their needs and then develop proposals for ideas that St George could support.
Photos Booth Engagement
We came up with creative ways to engage young people. One engagement method I came up with involved taking family portraits. We set up a photo booth at a family fair which enticed families over. While we took their photo we were able to ask them questions about their area while also being able to give something back by emailing them the photos.
Other engagement methods included organising a local photography competition and exhibition, and designing and facilitating two school workshops.
The final report contained the following:
Information to aid "painting a picture of the young people in Alperton." This included personnas, engagement data and an insights and opportunities page.
Ideas along with case studies to demonstrate best in practice and next steps.
