The Big Conversation

The Big Conversation is an unprecedented attempt to get inside the heads and into the hearts of those people whose lives and education were so rudely disrupted by Covid19, and who are notoriously hard to reach: our 18 to 21 year olds.  The Big Conversation aims first to find and then to talk to young people in an individual town – Wrexham – who were aged 16 to 18 years when the pandemic hit.

The objectives? To understand what makes them truly ‘tick’ in an era of once-in-a-generation confusion, chaos and noise. Then, with that understanding, to create the right opportunities for them.

The Big Conversation is part-funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in partnership with Wrexham County Borough Council.
