Our brand new South West YPEG (Young Person's Engagement Group) met for the first time in November in Filton, Bristol. We talked about what a YPEG group was and what we might be able to do if we worked together when we meet up.

  

We decided on the name KIDS Shake Up and worked together to develop a Mission Statement of what we want to achieve. Here is the KIDS Shake Up mission statement:

We then talked about having a logo to give our group an identity. We looked at lots of ideas of logos and each of the young people talked about things they felt our logo should have and why. We were able to come up with a logo that had bits of everybody's ideas in that we are really happy with!

          

We then had a discussion about this month's big topic which was 'Loneliness'. Everyone contributed and came up with some amazing ideas about what it meant to be lonely and how we can change those feelings.

One of our young people even came up with this extra masterpiece...

We ended up our group session with some computer games on the big screen and takeaway Pizza! What a fab day.
