Build Our Futures

Did you know that there is a new group of young people who come from all youth groups across the Wakefield area who meet monthly to improve services for children and young people.

The group is called Build our Futures. 

Build Our Futures had a Summit in May 2019 where it discussed issues that are important for young people.  There they asked what local government, and business and community groups were doing to improve the lives of children.

BOF is currently working on improving Emotional Wellbeing, Early Help,  Inclusive Education and Transition to Adulthood,    

If you would like to get involved in the group please contact
