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:

“I like being a Young Inspector because we go on trips, meet new people and it builds my confidence”

“I like the Young Inspectors as it helps my confidence skills”

“I like being a Young Inspector because we help people, make sure that people are safe and we help people who are less fortunate than me”

“It’s very interesting and fun to do as it allows us to get and experience. The people are very nice and do not judge”

“Easy to contact them and fast response, I take part in activities and meet new people and see new places. I learn new skills and build my confidence and I get to gain a certificate”

“The Young Inspectors makes me become a productive member of the community. Provides us with the skills that will asset us in the future e.g. Leadership. It builds my confidence. I get involved in things I wouldn’t have ever done. Helps my community become a better and safer place for young people. I learn things about myself and my abilities that I would have known”

“I like the way everyone contributes and learns new things in every inspection or every meeting. I think I am really lucky to learn new things and that I can have a good experience as a young inspector and I can socialise with other people”

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."
