Following the Government’s latest announced, we have been working closely with The National Youth Agency and Manchester City Council to see how we can continue to operate to best support young people throughout the new lockdown. 

Our online offer of #VirtualMYZ will continue throughout with more and more activities being scheduled, so please keep an eye on our social pages to see how you can get involved.

If you, or a young person you support, are struggling please don’t hesitate to get in touch as we are still able to offer both 1-1 support, and in some instances support groups –  just simply press the Message Button.
