HeadStart Kernow Young People's Board

The Headstart Kernow Young People’s Board has been central to the development of Headstart Kernow and were instrumental in securing the bid for Phase 3 of this exciting Big Lottery-funded initiative. The Board is drawn from young people from all over Cornwall.  Some of them are proud to identify themselves as having been beneficiaries of Headstart Kernow.

Board members are responsible for shaping our vision, mission and values, putting ‘Working Together’ at the heart of Headstart Kernow and all that we do.

Amy Pearton, Chair of HeadStart Kernow Young People’s Board, says 'We are going to build the resilience and emotional wellbeing of a child until they can spread the word and help others themselves. Wouldn’t that be just amazing!.... I would also like to celebrate the fact that everyone at HeadStart Kernow has kept the Young People’s voice and opinions at the heart of the first couple of phases. We plan to keep it that way!'
