Experts by Experience

In line with Blackburn with Darwen Healthy Living’s vision of involving local people in the design and delivery of services, our Experts by Experience project seeks to understand young people’s food experiences and what their everyday ‘food landscape’ looks like.

It builds on work done nationally involving local young people and adds further evidence to the issues of food poverty and holiday hunger which public figures such as Marcus Rashford and Emma Thompson have brought under the spotlight recently. Following co-production principles, a variety of stories will be told by local young people which will be used to inform policies going forwards.
