The Core Network 2019 Logo

The core network is an exciting opportunity enabling young people aged 13-19 to get actively involved and have a say on what happens regarding their services and within their communities.

Our charity is overseen by a board of trustees who watch over everything we do, and we want young people to be involved in that process. The network consist of young people from the Taunton Deane area working collectively to support services offered by ITMP as well as other young people in their locality through volunteering, social action, training and events.
