For them it was a triple whammy, rstly COVID-19 lockdowns, so no social life or support from mates during the lockdowns, then there’s the havoc it wreaked on their lessons and exams. ese students suddenly had to rely on other people to decide their grades and not just their own e orts. ere was no opportunity for last minute cramming. Finally, there were less apprenticeships and job opportunities because of the devastation COVID-19 has played on parts of the country’s economy. e Handy Trust, under the leadership of So a Richardson, has secured a grant from Sovereign Housing to help local young people into work, training or further education. is grant will cover the cost of laptops and time for youth workers to help local young people search for jobs, ll in applications and create C.V’s.

It was jointly awarded by the Association of Youth O ending Team Managers, to the County Council’s erapeutic Wellbeing O cers Project (TWO’s) and Lancashire Child and Youth Justice Service, a er judging by young people connected with last year’s winners: Bradford Youth O ending Team. e County Council’s Executive Lead Member for Children’s Services and Young People, Councillor Patricia Stallard, said: “ This award is well deserved and recognises the fantastic and innovative work that our Youth Offending Team does with young people who have experienced emotional and mental health difficulties. “Since the Therapeutic Wellbeing Project was set up, it has supported more than 150 children and young people whose difficulties are leading to offending or increasing their risk of offending. The Project’s work with them has benefitted these young people hugely by making them feel more motivated, confident and less anxious and this, in turn, has helped to improve their school attendance.” The Therapeutic Wellbeing Project was started in April 2018 in response to growing evidence that children’s wellbeing can impact on their behaviour and result in youth o ending. e Project builds trust in the young people, leading to longer term engagement and a reduction in multiple poor long-term outcomes.
