In this episode of the 4YP podcast, we’re at the Nightingale Centre in Wolverhampton. Nightingale work with young people, who, for a variety of reasons, are not attending mainstream schools. Many of the young people they work with have battled, and are still battling to overcome, serious challenges for their mental health and well-being.
I spent the morning with Matthew and Liam at Nightingale yesterday. It wasn’t easy for them to speak into the mic about their lives, but they bravely and thoughtfully shared their experiences, and their ideas for supporting other young people in similar situations.
Please listen to what they have to say, and remember that many other young people are facing similar challenges, and need our support.
Huge thanks to Matthew, Liam, and to the Nightingale Centre. We're back on the Nightingale Centre next week to speak to more young people.
