Envision in coalition to create Generation Change

Envision is pleased to announce the launch of Generation Change; a new coalition of specialist youth social action organisations aiming to increase the quality, quantity and impact of social action in the UK today.

A founding member of the coalition, Envision will be working to champion the youth social action sector and help drive up the number of young people actively involved in high quality social action.

Backed by the Cabinet Office Generation Change will  provide a platform for collaboration between youth social action and other related organisations whilst sharing knowledge, insight and understanding across the sector and with business, education and government.

While there are many excellent volunteering opportunities for young people around the country, we want more organisations to work together to offer more opportunities. That’s why I’m delighted that this is now happening under the Generation Change banner. This will give more young people the chance to build their skills and confidence through social action.

Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society

The coalition brings together a diverse group of 13 specialist organisations; Ashoka, Beatbullying, City Year, Envision, Fixers, Free the Children, Future Foundations, Student Hubs, The Challenge Network, UnLtd, Uprising, vInspired and Year Here.

With over 12 years experience of supporting young people to take social action in their communities Envision will bring a unique insight into delivering engaging and inspiring social action programmes that bring both community benefit and support young people to develop competencies that will help them in employment or further education.
