I can thoroughly recommend Sonia Mainstone-Cotton’s work. Sonia recently audited the involvement of young people in our work. She was very thorough, meeting all staff, lots of young people and our trustees, which was brought together in a report on our work. The report was really useful in terms of encouraging us where we were doing well and challenging us where there is room for improvement. Sonia, however went further than simply writing a report with helpful recommendations, she also helped us to think about how to put the recommendations into place with practical tools to be applied in the context of our youth work and mentoring. The audit experience culminated in a half day workshop, which was not only a good team exercise but enabled all staff to consider the importance of involving young people in their work. Thank you Sonia.
