Speak Up Partners

We have been successfully piloting Speak Up since Autumn 2021 in seven schools across Wakefield, Sunderland and Greater Manchester. In each area, we have been listening to what the young people want and need, creating a bespoke programme of activity for each school in response to its students’ needs.  

As a result, we are expanding Speak Up into 55 targeted schools across Doncaster, Greater Manchester, Hornchurch, Sunderland, Wakefield and Wolverhampton with ambitions to extend to other areas. We will connect with schools nationally at key moments to share ideas and outcomes, and to raise the profile of the work happening in schools across the country.

The current partners for Speak Up are:  ​
