Introduction from Charlotte

Hello everyone!

I am Charlotte and I have recently joined the Momentum (part of Voluntary Norfolk) team as the Momentum Groups Officer. I will be supporting local Norfolk Youth Groups / Organisations to deliver quality services which are safe, accessible, and inclusive for young people to help inspire, involve, and empower!
I have joined the Voluntary Norfolk team with a background in Criminology and Sociology (recently graduating from Anglia Ruskin University), and I currently locally volunteer with young people at the Norwich 35th Sea Scouts and Beavers Section as a Section Assistant Leader. I am exceedingly passionate about making a positive difference through Youth Work and supporting young people to feel empowered to achieve their full potential. If you would like to have a chat to find out a little bit more about what I do, please feel free to contact me via phone or email. My email is and my phone number is 07810 406136. I look forward to hearing from you!

Event recordings

Several of our Empowering Communities workshops in the last few months focused on working with young people. If you weren't able to attend, or you just want to remind yourself of what we discussed, head to our YouTube channel to find recordings of these events:

Introduction to youth participation

Youth Work Network resources

Don’t forget, we have a Padlet board where you can share resources, training opportunities and information about new projects. It also has a ‘Q&A’ section where you can get support from your fellow youth workers and answer their queries.

If you’re not used to Padlet and want some help getting started, please contact Aimee.
