A city that maximises the potential of children and young people

Almost 10% of children and young people living in the capital aged between 5 and 16 experience some form of mental health issue.

Our aspiration

We will build on the exciting developments happening across London to engage children and young people in mental health, encourage them to lead initiatives, and develop training and resources for youth organisations, schools, and student societies.

We will establish a programme of London-wide and local events for young people and leaders from faith groups and other youth organisations to come together, to explore the causes of young people’s mental health problems and ways in which young people say they can be helped to stay well.

Thrive LDN will encourage and promote work with children and young people who have experience of being looked-after, homeless, have left care or youth justice or are currently going through it.

Stay tuned for more information on our ideas to maximises the potential of children and young people.
