About us

The aim of the Young Inspectors Programme is to:

  • Inspect services to make sure they are doing what they should be doing.
  • Give feedback to services including what’s good and what could be made better.
  • Make sure that children, young people & families are listened to.
  • Raise young people’s confidence and self-esteem.
  • Get young people engaged with the services.

What the Young Inspectors enjoy the most:

"Young inspectors improves my confidence and my language"

"I learn lots of new things and I meet people and make new friends which is really important to me".

"I have met new people and we have inspected different services. In the group we all respect each other's opinions which is very important".

"It has helped me make new friends and become more confident in working with other people".

"I like how we are all friends and we can all work together to achieve things like raising over £1000 for Safe@Last and the Hospital".

"I have found a placement for college work experience at a Children's Centre through Ashlea. I would like to say thanks to the young inspector's project for helping me make connections which helped me to find a placement"

"I have developed lots of different skills including analytical skills and working well in groups with others. I have met new people and developed my communication skills as I socialise with them"

"I have done things such as inspecting different places which I had never thought of doing"

"Our Young Inspectors make a significant contribution towards improving the quality of the services we deliver and provide to children, young people and families in Rotherham. They are an integral part of our improvement journey and continue to shine a light on what’s working well and what we need to improve. They are fantastic to work with and never fail to impress and amaze me with their professionalism and enthusiasm to make a positive difference."
