42nd Street has a number of projects running through the year read about some of them below:
We Tell You
A Manchester peer research group based at 42nd Street and supported by Manchester Metropolitan University, has authored and published a new research report and manifesto. Co-produced with 27 young Black men on how to better understand and improve young black men’s access to mental health services.
Funded by Comic Relief and delivered in partnership with Sagita Media, Survivors Manchester and TIPP, Film 42 is a project which empowers young Black men to explore mental health through filmmaking. The films seek to change the way that young Black men access services for support and in turn, how these services ensure they have the best possible experience.
Care Leavers aged 16-25 have come together to lead on research into how mental health services can be improved to better support care experienced young people.
Thriving at Work
Young people with experience of mental health conditions led a project looking at how young people can thrive in the workplace.
Having discussed the various projects that are ongoing this year, we have decided to allocate our 2021 donation towards the amazing online support that is offered at 42nd Street. It’s a service that has been needed this year more than ever – it’s allowed young people to continue to access groups and support throughout lockdowns and Covid-19 restrictions. But without continued support this service would not be possible and we are so happy to be able to contribute to the fantastic work the team are doing.
