SELFIE stands for Sefton Education for Life programme For Individual Empowerment.
It has been set up by young people using youth led funding. The aim is to involve young people in discussion and debate in relation to political issues. This means they can explore their values, attitudes and beliefs regarding issues that are important to them. It gives them the confidence and skills to identify how society functions and how they can help shape services and contribute to change.
As the project has evolved, young people have attended residential weekends and days, where young people referred to the service via the Safeguarding Hub take part in youth voice sessions.
