The Civic Journey

The Civic Journey is a programme of research and social action, led by young people. This transformational two-year programme supports and inspires sustained engagement in social action, community activism, and entrepreneurial spirit across the UK.

In 2020, the Institute for Community Studies’ Safety in Numbers? report found that supporting better pathways for young people was the most agreed upon priority for communities across the UK. This research found young people aged 16 - 30 wanted routes to take action in their communities and path-ways to shape positive change in society - but the majority felt they lacked the entry points, infrastructure, support and resources to do so.
