Drop In Support for Young People and Parents Following Manchester Arena Bombing

Following last Monday’s terrorist attack young people from right across the city have been emotionally affected by the tragic events that took place. Many of our local young people went the concert on Monday night and many others had friends who attended.

As next week is half term drop in sessions have been arranged for young people and their parents to attend to provide emotional and wellbeing support to those young people who need it. A team of trained and experienced professionals will be available onsite at the venues and times below in order to provide information and advice to students and parents, to promote the emotional health and wellbeing of children, during this particularly difficult period should they need it.

BMCA Youth and Play team were selected as one of three play providers in the Manchester area to be involved in a case study, which has a report presenting the findings from a small-scale research project that explores the value of playwork provision for children, their families and the wider community in Manchester.  Towards the end of last year, Stuart Lester may have spoken to some of you about the impact of our Junior Club and Junior generation sessions on your children and families.  The report is attached to this post, feel free to click the link and read all about the findings.
