Team High Sheriff was founded by Robina Shah on the principle that “young people matter”.
Our aim is to work in partnership with young people and have conversations about what matters to them: Such as looking after their physical health and mental well-being, concerns about employment, housing, social inclusion, crime reduction, community cohesion, opportunities to access education and vocational training.
We will do this through our Team High Sheriff Ambassadors who will facilitate conversation forums and host practical workshops to up-skill our young people in areas such as leadership, team building, communication and social skills.
These conversations will be grounded in the lived experience of the young people we support.
Team High Sheriff will also use its networks and strategic partners to ensure that what young people learn in our conversation forums is translated in to meaningful practice through work based placements, apprenticeship schemes or voluntary work experience.
Organisations that provide support services to young people and also mentoring, coaching, work experience and volunteering will also be encouraged to signpost their work thereby creating a one-journey approach.
By valuing the contribution of our young people as as experts by experience Team High Sheriff will ensure that their involvement is acknowledged, valued and is personal to them.
