Dynamite and Young Inspectors

Dynamite is a young people’s group for those aged 14-25 with a disability in Portsmouth. Dynamite’s job is to make sure that young people with a disability or special educational need have a say in how services for young people are run in the city.

Dynamite do this by holding:

  • Social evenings with themed topics
  • Sending out surveys to find out what young people in Portsmouth think
  • Meetings with decision makers so that they can hear young people’s voices.
  • Monthly meetings to discuss issues and plan the work which Dynamite does.

Find out more on their service page.

Young Inspectors

Dynamite also carry out Young People’s inspector reports on venues used by young people across the city. They look at 5 different areas including:

  • The information prior to visiting available on the website
  • Accessibility
  • Staff
  • Safety and Surroundings
  • Fun and Enjoyment

All areas are scored out of 10 and then given an overall score. Overall high scores will receive a Dynamite sticker of approval to place in their window. Find out more about becoming a Young Inspector.

The drop down menu below includes the reports that have been carried out so far.
