Become a Youth Inspector



Youth inspection is a method of youth participation that is focused on

giving critical feedback to projects, organisations, services, funders,

institutions or other bodies that are connected to young people in order

to improve the quality of their work. These can be bodies that are directly

delivering an offer of services to young people or those involved at arm’s

length in policy, strategy or funding. We call these bodies inspectees.


  • Youth led - young people take responsibility for making all major decisions relating to the inspection and adults play a supportive role; 
  • Co-produced - young people and adults collaborate to take decisions relating to the inspection, sharing power between them;
  • Consultative - young people advise adults on the decision that should be made


This is a fantastic opportunity for young people in Cumbria they will gain entrepreneurial skills, become part of a national initiative and receive incentives during certain inspections.
