Case studies of prevention work in the voluntary sector

The voluntary and community sector (VCS) plays a vital role in supporting young people’s mental health and wellbeing. This includes prevention and early help, supporting young people’s engagement in decision making and providing services. The Young People’s Health Partnership has been working with the National Children’s Bureau to support the VCS to engage in the transformation of mental health services for children and young people.

As part of this work we have gathered some examples from the VCS of prevention work they have undertaken with young people which can support their mental health and wellbeing. This document shares these examples as a way of increasing understanding about the range of work happening in the VCS and the importance of a focus on prevention.
