Jayne Shackleton

Youth Participation Worker

Date Started: 7th Jan 2019

Responsibilities: To improve the quality and opportunities in all our Direct delivery youth clubs and to actively encourage and gain youth voice and participation in all the clubs across the region.

Favourite part of your job: The fact that my job is so varied; I get to visit many different clubs across North Yorkshire. I especially enjoy delivering our Drugs & Alcohol workshops to young people, as well as ‘detached’ youth work where we talk to young people in the community to gain their opinions, discuss challenges they may face in different areas and help keep young people safe and feel part of their community.

Hobbies/Interest: I am quite creative and enjoy painting and sketching, I also love reading and music. In addition I volunteer with a small local charity which helps support refugees and also volunteer as an Independent Volunteer which is a ‘be-friending’ scheme run by NYY supporting young people in care.
