This episode is the first in a mini-series on the value of advice for ‘Generation Covid’.
I am joined by Simone Spray CEO of 42nd Street, a Greater Manchester based charity that provides free and confidential services to young people who are experiencing difficulties with their mental health and emotional well-being. We discuss the challenges facing young people today and how they have been exasperated by the pandemic and the value of advice for young people’s mental health and wellbeing. Simone explains how 42nd Street include their service-users in service design and delivery and the importance of doing this right. She gives her recommendations for how advice services can better engage with young people and how funders and policy-makers can support youth advice organisations and ensure young people have access to them.
