SHAPE Our Future

SHAPE Our Future is the annual child’s voice conference which is held at the end of the year for children and young people to take part in interactive workshops and voice their opinions on the 5 outcomes of SHAPE:

Staying Safe
Being Healthy
Enjoying & Achieving
Making a Positive Contribution
Economic Wellbeing

Primary, secondary, pupil referral units and special schools are invited to take part in this enjoyable but informative event.

SHAPE Your Talent

Young people asked for their talents to be recognised. They feel academically they are rewarded through school but not for other talents therefore SHAPE Your Talent was born.

Individuals and schools are requested to take part in these shows and encourage young people to showcase their talents in music, drama and entertainment.


SHAPE Youth Forum consists of representatives from the Looked After Children’s Board, Youth Parliament and Sandwell College. We shall be working with schools to include representatives from school councils.

The forum will focus on young people broadening the SHAPE ethos including shaping and delivering SHAPE Events as well as other engagement activities.

If you are ages 9-19 and are interested in being a part of SHAPE Youth Forum, then please email shape_events@sandwell.gov.uk with some information about yourself and what you can bring to the group.

SHAPE Youth Festival

Young people stated there are no outdoor activities or events held by Council and partners and for this reason they stay indoors. So SHAPE introduced the SHAPE Youth Festival, a fun filled outdoor event catering for 0-19 year olds held in the summer holidays.
