The Breckland Youth Advisory Board is a body of young people and professionals that meet on a bi-monthly basis. The aim of the YAB is to identify issues that impact on young people and to play a strategic role in meeting these needs through the commissioning of services, lobbying on behalf of young people and influencing decision makers.
Breckland Youth Advisory Board and Breckland Council are seeking applicants to deliver the Breckland Youth Mental Health (BYMH) Project, across Breckland. Young Commissioners and Breckland Council have joined together to offer £35,000 to fund the project.
As a result of YAB’s research, we will be working in partnership with Breckland District Council to fund a Breckland Youth Mental Health Project. The BYMH Project will offer training and support to parents and carers living in Breckland via regular group meetings in all of the market towns. These meetings must be facilitated by a Mental Health Professional and will provide a space for peer-to-peer support and regular training as identified by the groups. BYMH project will provide family/1-2-1 sessions offering support and guidance around good mental health.
