This report is about the Carnegie UK Trust’s youth programme- the Carnegie Young People’s Initiative (CYPI) which ran between 1996 and 2007. This report charts the lessons learned as well as presenting ideas for further action, targeted at government and others. The rational for engaging young people in decision-making about the things that are important for them in their lives is one that will not go away. It will only grow in importance as we seek to make our society more democratic, inclusive and less discriminatory. Young People whether as consumers of public services and as citizens have a right to be heard. This report will be a helpful tool in this process.
