The Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Challenge is the England-wide event where children get to take over in the work place. Bradford District is a flagship hub/area for the Takeover Challenge as up and down the country, organisations hand over the reins of power to children giving organisations access to great ideas and forward thinking initiatives. This provides children with a unique opportunity to learn how the world works and inspire them to think how their future careers. This year’s Challenge is launching on Friday 18th November. This is being supported by a number of Partners including Bradford Council, Young Lives Bradford and NHS Employers.
There are three ways that voluntary sector organisations can support this.

Run an “in house” takeover You may want to plan for the young people you work with to “takeover” your organisation or some of the roles. If you are thinking of doing this drop an email email@example.com with the details of who to contact in your organisation to develop your offer. If this doesn't work for you on 18th November (a schoolday) you can, of course, run this on another date.
