Objective 4

Developing and sustaining an engaged and connected network of member organisations

  • To support younger organisations and groups to develop through mentorship and advice

Key Activities

Annual Members’ Conference

Our largest event of the year brings together over 75 representatives from our membership. As well as carrying out the statutory duties of the organisation, increasing the three day event is becoming an important opportunity to build the skills of our members, consult with the network on key issues and promote collaboration and partnership work.

Regional Consultations

As the IGLYO network grows and diversifies, we understand that the needs and priorities of our members also become more varied. Introduced in 2016, our annual consultation event allows us to target members within a specific region to better understand their work and foster partnerships between organisations.

Thematic Youth Network meetings

Started in 2017, IGLYO will identify one thematic topic a year and aim to build partnerships between our members who are working in this area.

Building and developing the network

Over the next three years, IGLYO will proactively identify and approach potential new members to ensure the network continues to grow and develop. IGLYO will also aim to work with existing members to ensure they develop youth participation within their work and provide progression routes for younger, less experienced activists.
