Members Forum


As the leading youth work organization in Northern Ireland, YouthAction believes passionately in the potential of all young people and therefore greatly values the contribution they can and do make to the work of the agency at all levels. It is therefore important that a project like The Rainbow Factory, with its weekly attendance of some 350 young people, ensures that there is a mechanism which permits and encourages their involvement in the day to day running and forward planning of this massive project.

With this in mind, The Rainbow Factory MEMBERS FORUM GROUP was established some 20 years ago and this ''member elected'' group in its many different reincarnations has played a vital role in making the Rainbow Factory work so successfully.
The Members Forum provides the staff with a much needed and continuous monitoring system for the whole Rainbow Factory, so that if any problems do occur, they can be addressed almost immediately. They''re also highly involved in the planning and implementation of our annual special events/fundraising programmes and help to staff the ''Front Of House'' when productions are being staged. They also produce an occasional in-house Newssheet which keeps the members up to date with the many ''goings on'' in The Rainbow Factory.
