About the project
FYV is a youth led project funded by The National Lottery Community Fund that empowers young people to have their voices heard on the issues they care about. The project not only listens to the concerns and aspirations of young people, but it also provides them with the opportunity, skills and resources to take a pro-active role in making a real difference to their community.
FYV is a network for young people with shared interests and drive for change. FYV supports young people from Southend aged 10-24 years old, to collaborate and create opportunities that drive the passions of a generation forward to take positive action.
