  1. For your project, how did you include ‘groups on the fringe of mainstream services, eg, learning difficulties, travellers, young carers, young people in care, refugees, asylum seekers, homeless young people, young parents, or those in rural isolation??’

  2. We were type of encouraged to look at that, but not to worry about it too much. There are very few groups in Brentwood who can meet any of those criteria, was the comment I heard. They are more interested in the links with Children Matter, and that the ideas come from the young people themselves – not the youth workers.

    Hope that helps.
