Take the Lead Stories

Take the Lead Stories is a unique compilation of stories written by young adults who have experienced adversity in their lives.

The project has been designed and led by Leaders Unlocked intern, Romaine Murchison, working collaboratively with young adults with a range of life experiences including school exclusion, the care system, and the criminal justice system.



"There’s been a fundamental change in the way that we approach youth consultation. Before it was a staff-led approach. Now there’s a genuine youth-led approach; there are up to 35 young people, talking to other young people about their experience of crime and policing. It has been such a significant impact."
