Our Say Our Way is an exciting project which encourages young people to have a say on the issues that affect them.
Led by Peabody and sponsored by the Big Lottery Fund, it gives 12-21-year-olds a voice and a chance to have their say about the decisions that impact their lives and their local community. They can then make a positive difference to themselves and others around them.
