We have today announced a new Charity Partnership with 42nd Street to help the youth charity in its mission to support the emotional well being of children and young people living in Manchester, Salford and Trafford.
For almost 25 years, 42nd Street has been providing support services to young people under stress. Working with young people aged between 13 -25, their services include counselling, individual support, group work and volunteering opportunities
In 2013 the charity was instrumental in offering over 1000 individuals support and counselling, as well as delivering individual community mental health support and counselling to 650 young people. Over the last year it has delivered 13 long and short term group work programmes to 200 young people, and the charity’s strong online presence meant that it was able to answer questions posed by young people, parents and carers direct on topics such as self-harm.
John Neate, Operations Director, said: "Giving back to the communities in which we live and work has long been a core value of Access and our employees. We are very pleased to be partnering with 42nd Street and we hope that with our work and support, the charity continues to make a lasting difference to the lives of young local people”
“Following the loss of our friend and colleague, Ian Wilkinson last year we wanted to lend our support to a charity which provides vital support to young people who find themselves battling mental health issues. “
