The Peer Action Collective is a £5.2 million programme, which aims to give young people the chance to make their communities safer, fairer places to live.

It is funded by the Youth Endowment Fund, the #iwill Fund (a joint investment between The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) and the Co-op Group.

What do the Peer Action Collective (PAC) do?

All too often, young people who experience violence aren’t heard. But change won’t happen if they’re not at the heart of it. That’s why the Peer Action Collective (PAC) exists.

Funded by the Youth Endowment Fund, the #iwill Fund (a joint investment between The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) and the Co-op Group, the PAC is here to support young people to take the lead. It’s a ground-breaking network of peer researchers. That means that young people will be in charge of asking questions and finding out what needs to happen to make their area a better place for to live.

But it’s about more than learning about what needs to change. Being part of the PAC means young people will get support to take their research and turn it into action. From setting up a youth centre, taking action to improve local mental health services, or supporting more young people into employment – together, they’ll create opportunities for you to make their communities safer, fairer places.
