Our #SpeakUp small grants scheme awards funding to local community, voluntary, or not-for-profit groups, enabling them to engage with their communities about what matters to them. 

Recommendations from the report:

  • Cut down waiting times for mental health services for young people through increasing investment in those services and staff
  • Improve information about what services are available and how to access them
  • Improve the flexibility of services by delivering support in different locations where young people are and by ensuring that the services meet young people on their own terms
  • Support/train young people to become ‘young verifiers’ so they can use the national ‘You’re Welcome’ standards to assess services
  • Improve the way young people are supported to talk about their experience of mental health
  • Carry out an evaluation of the transition pathway from child to adult services
