This document describes the content framework for the HUWY project as well as outlining the main types of content that will be added to the Hub websites. It is a record of the development of the content framework, an overview of how content on the sites will be organised, examples of content and a plan for the next steps of the project.
Activities in the period described in this document include:
* Various workshops and focus groups with young people in Estonia (see D5.11)
* Focus group with young people at the Northern Ireland Youth Forum.

This report begins with a description of the methods used to develop a content framework that would encourage young people to engage with HUWY topics, yet also support policy makers in their use of young peopleā€˜s results and ideas. The report then builds a picture of how the types of content should be assembled and how it will be organised on the Hub websites. Types of content discussed in this report include:
* Resources to support youth group participants and facilitators
* Guidance for facilitators and participants
* Resources to support policy-makers
