    Abstract

    Proponents of the Capabilities Approach advocate that young people should be able to live lives they have reason to value, supported by public services. Mixed-methods Participatory Action Research involving 47 young people aged 13–16, five practitioners, and one commissioner was carried out to develop a local Capabilities Framework. The framework had five themes: ‘people and relationships’, ‘places, spaces and time for me’, ‘learning and skills’, ‘freedoms, rights and responsibilities’ and ‘health and wellbeing’. Recommendations for service design include cross-sector working to support the promotion of social opportunities and services, and interventions focused on the strengths of each young person.
