Toolkits & Resources
WRITING, DEVELOPING AND PILOTING RESOURCES IS A FUN PART OF WHO WE ARE.
We have created curriculum resources for schools, information and training resources for professionals, marketing or raising awareness for Government departments and resources for children and young people created by children and young people.
In all projects:
- we involve children and young people as well as the client as we step through the processes of scoping, research, writing, editing, illustrating, piloting, amending and delivering.
- we use multi-media approaches including film, animation and e-learning & training modules to engage, communicate and support learning
- we make sure resources are bright, engaging, professional plain-language and easy to use
- we make sure that everything can be sustainable.
We have just launched the Young Carers' Toolkit for Wales where we developed resources, films, training, engagement ideas and raising awareness activities and information. We were commissioned to develop resources for Foundation Phase children across Wales that encouraged decision-making. We developed an array of activities, stories, poems, films, ideas and some cute little alien characters called Plaps.
"When we commissioned Youth Friendly to produce a pack for 5 - 7 year olds to help them gain the necessary skills to participate in decision-making, we didn't think that they would come up with something as fun, creative and original as the PLAP pack! We are delighted with the result, and we hope that children and teachers in classrooms throughout Wales will be too!"
