Belfast Pride – Thank you!
We had a brilliant day at Belfast Pride! Huge THANK YOU to everyone that came along to represent VOYPIC, and to celebrate Pride with us and our colleagues and young people from Include Youth.
We really enjoyed the breakfast and chats in 100GPS before we set off and had great craic singing and dancing our way around the streets of Belfast.
We are already looking forward to next year.
Data Research Advisers Group.
We have a fantastic opportunity for a limited number of young people to join this group. We are holding an information session at our next meeting, on Tuesday 12 September at 5pm at Queen’s main building.
Some words below from Rhianna Brown, VOYPIC Young Rep and Data Research Adviser about the Group.
“As Data Advisers we have regular workshops to look at how our data is used, and we decide what research questions we can ask to try and make things better for young people in the future. I only went along to the first workshop because VOYPIC staff persuaded me to! But it turned out to be a good thing to get involved in. I’ve enjoyed learning new things about research and how to use administrative data to try and make things better for children and young people, and help with their mental wellbeing.” Click here to read Rhianna’s blog in full
