Hampshire County Council has been working with YPEG (Young People's Engagement Group - KIDS) and the SAY Group (HARG) on a number of really important pieces of work.
YPEG helped co-produce the design and functionality of Hampshire's Local Offer web pages as well as suggesting content that could be added.
You can see the video of one of the early activities for this piece of work, above.
The Council for Disabled Children's case study report of this can be found here: Hampshire Local Offer – Engaging Young People in Improving Web Design
More recent feedback can be reviewed as a download document.
A number of young people from Hampshire colleges, schools, YPEG and SAY Group participated in a "post 16 provision" questionnaire looking at the four Preparation for Adulthood outcomes - employment, health, community inclusion and independent living.
The YPEG and SAY Group members helped to summarise the key findings from the results and presented these findings to Hampshire County Council management by way of an excellent presentation, which was produced by one of the YPEG members.

Thanks to the feedback from YPEG, Hampshire County Council were able to understand why participation is really important for young people.
YPEG members produced a draft plan of the design and content for a participation and engagement strategy for children and young people in Hampshire.
Hampshire County Council is working with key partners to ensure that the content highlighted in the work above is included in this new design.
