There are 9 statutory and voluntary sector services taking part in YAF 2008, and several more will participate in the launch night. It is a chance for services to publicise their project to a greater audience, within a wider youth collaboration. To raise awareness of services among young people, adults and professionals, and highlight the creative talents of young people. The Youth Arts Fringe committee is a group of representatives from young people’s services across the city, who have recognised the need for services to collaborate to gain maximum exposure. The project has a young person representative and service users are involved in its development.
