22,000 Creative Care kits will be distributed to young people who are not online from today, thanks to a partnership led by Greater Manchester combined authority and involving local charities and businesses, including the Turnpike Gallery.
Each kit contains 36 pages of activities, hints and tips on protecting your mental wellbeing and a set of art materials.
As well as giving young people something to do, the kits will help create a sense of connection at a time when they are not able to rely on face-to-face interactions.
Working with local authorities and education providers, the kits will be distributed to young people aged between 18 and 24, who may be struggling with their mental health, or might be a care leaver, a young carer or not in education, employment or training.
