Peer Action Collective (PAC) Project

The Peer Action Collective (PAC) is a ground-breaking network of young people, who are designing and conducting research about young people’s experiences of violence.

They’ll then be supported to turn what they’ve learned into action. From campaigning to improve local mental health services, setting up a youth centre or supporting young people into employment – the PAC will create opportunities for young people to make their community a safer, fairer place. The PAC is working across England and Wales. YPAS is the lead organisation in the North West.




The PAC will see 120 peer researchers (aged 16-25) design their own research questions and work with around 5,000 other young people (aged 10–20) to find out about young people’s experiences of violence and their views on how they can help make their communities better places to live and work.

The findings will be used by a group of CHANGE MAKERS, made up of 1,500 10-20-years-olds, who will take what the researchers learn and turn it into action.
