GREATER MANCHESTER YOUTH NETWORK - WORKSHOP

GMYN has recently been commissioned by Bury Clinical Commissioning Group to undertake an analysis to identify the mental health and well-being needs of vulnerable and hard to reach groups of young people in Bury. In order to support this work we are looking to engage with inspiring local youth organisations to deliver interactive consultation workshops with young people

 

The workshop will aim to gather the views of young people in relation to their needs and the services/projects they access.

The information gathered would be fed back to the CCG and would be used to look at what services were provided for young people and how they could be improved.
