Coming together - the importance of children and young people connecting

The VOICES project is working with over 1,000 young people across the North East to understand the needs of children and young people aged 5–18 living in poverty in and through the pandemic. Young people are telling us that what they have missed most over the past year has been the opportunity to spend time with friends and wider family and to engage in a variety of activities. VOICES is working with Culture Bridge North East and partner organisations across the North East to respond to this and ask what can be done now to support children and young people?
