    That awkward age - pt. II

    That awkward age - pt. II

    This episode is part II of our focus on the unique challenges faced by vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds as they navigate the often tricky transition to adulthood. 

    This was recorded live from an event in Parliament where 13 organisations came together to launch a new report on Transitions into Adulthood.

    That awkward age

    That awkward age

    In this episode, we’re talking about that awkward age between childhood and adulthood. For vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds this can be especially awkward, as support they receive from services will often drop away once they turn 18.

    Where would you turn in a crisis?

    Where would you turn in a crisis?

    In this month's episode of Talking Change, we explore what financial crisis looks like for families and young people. 
    For families in crisis, emergency funding from councils allows them to buy food, pay utility bills and keep their children safe. This support provides a vital safety net when the worst happens. But in many areas, this safety net is at real risk of disintegrating. For 1 in 7 councils, it has already disappeared. 
    Our Strengthening the Safety Net campaign is calling on councils across the country to maintain their commitment to providing effective crisis support. Use our interactive map to find out the situation in your local area. Read our podcast blog for more information on the campaign.

    A fairer start for care leavers

    A fairer start for care leavers

    For the last couple of years, The Children’s Society has been running a local campaign asking councils to make young people who have left care exempt from paying council tax up to the age of 25.

    The campaign has been a fantastic success story, with tens of thousands of care leavers now exempt from paying council tax. In this episode, we reflect on the campaign; why it was necessary, how it was accomplished, and what still remains to be done.

    Young people's mental health

    Young people's mental health

    For young people struggling with their mental health, getting help can be hard. Long waiting times, strict criteria for access, and real uncertainty once you turn 18 are just some of the obstacles you can face in a system massively failing to meet the level of need.

    The Government has recently unveiled a bold and ambitious set of reforms which they promise will transform the way that we approach children and young people’s mental health in this country. But does it stack up?

    NRPF: No Recourse to Public Funds

    NRPF: No Recourse to Public Funds

    I investigate the daily struggle faced by families subject to No Recourse to Public Funds, a condition of their immigration status that prevents them from accessing any benefits or welfare support.

    When these families fall into poverty, they are confronted with a unique set of challenges which can be extremely difficult to overcome. The consequences, particularly for children, can be devastating.
