Addressing the impacts of the pandemic:

Supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing


Young Manchester is delighted to be launching this fund to support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in Manchester. Alongside our partners, Manchester Health and Care Commissioning, Young Manchester wants every child and young person in Manchester to thrive and to realise their full potential through outstanding opportunities.  We want to collaborate with partners and to help the VCSE sector to play its part in mitigating the effects of pandemic on children and young people’s wellbeing.

This funding will:

  • Ensure the provision of activities in support of children and young people’s wellbeing
  • Resource the VCSE sector to be able to support the statutory response to supporting children and young people
  • Place children and young people’s voice and experience at the heart of services
