Manchester City Council have recently launched their Young Carers Strategy setting out how they intend to work with and support young carers as well as the resources that are available to them.
All Young People
The Manchester Safeguarding Boards (MSB) comprises the Manchester Safeguarding Adults Board (MSAB) and the Manchester Safeguarding Children Boards (MSCB). The Boards share an Independent Chair, Julia Stephens-Row; and are supported by the MSB Business Unit.
The Manchester Safeguarding Boards have developed their strategic priorities for 2017/18, with invaluable input from children, young people and adults with care and support needs.
Health Action Champions is a fantastic opportunity for people aged 16 – 21 to help improve young people’s health across Manchester.
You will get the chance to design and lead your own health awareness work, improve your knowledge of health and health services, and contribute to key discussions about health.
Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP) in partnership with Manchester Mind provides an advice/advocacy service for young people who identify as disabled and are in crisis. This often causes many young people to experience (or to have experienced) discrimination and barriers because they have impairments.
As you will be aware, Lifeline has been experiencing significant financial difficulties over the past few months. This has culminated in a position where in order to safeguard service provision, particularly for service users and to look after the interests of staff, Lifeline approached CGL to assist in a process that would ensure service continuity.
The current threat from terrorism in the United Kingdom can involve the exploitation of vulnerable people, including children, young people and vulnerable adults to involve them in terrorism or activity in support of terrorism.
It is universally agreed that this exploitation should be viewed as a safeguarding concern.
This guidance is intended to provide a clear framework for all professionals working with children for whom there are concerns that they are at risk of becoming involved in violent extremist activity.
This vigil is to honour those we lost and those who are still affected by the Manchester terrorist attack on 22 May 2017.
You are kindly invited to the one month anniversary Vigil on Thursday 22 June, 7pm-9pm at Alexandra Park, 180 Russell Street, Moss Side, Manchester, M16 7JL. Come and gather, pay your respects and acknowledge these who we lost and who have suffered from the painful events which took place.
Our third Volunteers’ Week Spirit Story comes from Hannah – a volunteer with City Year UK.
City Year UK is a youth social action charity, challenging 18 - 25 year olds to give a year in their local community supporting students and schools in disadvantaged areas across Greater Manchester.
City Year volunteers give their time 4 days a week at a local school as tutors, mentors and role models, supporting students both in and outside the classroom.
