#TeamGMYN - Great Manchester Run 10K and Half Marathon!
Manchester City Centre, Manchester City Centre, United Kingdom
Why join #TeamGMYN?
For many young people, the transition to adulthood isn’t easy. In the UK, one third of young people are lonely, half feel unready for work and half feel like they don’t belong to their community. What’s more, in Greater Manchester, 1 in 3 children live in poverty.
With the additional challenges of Covid-19, young people have never been more in need of support: one million under 25s in the UK are expected to face unemployment by the end of the year and 80% of young people with a history of mental ill health have said their condition is getting worse.
Our vision is #YoungPeopleCan...
...and we change the lives of young people in Greater Manchester.
We help young people in Greater Manchester overcome this. We deliver a range of development programmes and drop-in activities to help young people aged 13-25 transition to adulthood feeling skilled, supported and positive. Our key focus is supporting young people who face significant challenges, including those with experience of the care system (looked after children and care leavers); special educational needs and disabilities (SEND); and social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) challenges.
Over two thirds of young people are in care due to abuse or neglect.
Care leavers are 6x more likely to be convicted, 5x more likely to self-harm and 3x more likely to be unemployed but your fundraising can make a huge difference.
- £100 provides two children in care with an animal therapy session.
- £200 gives 10 young people a day of work experience with a local employer.
- £500 gives a group of looked-after children 16 hours of guided music-making.
Join #TeamGMYN on Sunday 26th September and help us change the lives of young people in Greater Manchester.
