Help us to support the children and young people in our city to bounce back.
Bouncing Back is our new Learning & Engagement strategy which will respond proactively to the acute needs of children and young people in our city in the wake of COVID-19.
This strategy will reach over 2000 children and young people in Salford over the next 18 months, supporting some of the most vulnerable including young carers, looked after children, those experiencing homelessness and those not in education, employment or training.
Following lockdown, children, young people and families are continuing to face significant challenges, with an increase in mental health difficulties, financial hardship, domestic violence and children being taken into care.
New research reveals that 71% of young people are worried about the future and 46% are suffering from worsening mental health.
Using the arts as a creative stimulus Bouncing Back will improve the life-chances and mental-health of children and young people in Salford.
