In front of an audience of housing professionals, the three girls highlighted the role projects led by young people can play in reducing antisocial behaviour on estates and in communities.

Their workshop involved identifying the best ways to adopt a youth-led approach to increasing engagement and establishing key partnerships.

"Oii My Size has provided the girls with the opportunity to develop and lead their own campaign and we are very pleased to be sharing this as best practice with other housing associations and professionals," says Isabel Chapman, Assistant Youth Cordinator.

"This was a great opportunity for Peabody and the Oii My Size girls to promote this work and speak at their very first conference." 

Next on the team's agenda is a presentation at Sovereign Housing Group for their domestic violence awareness week.
