Salford's Emotional Health and Wellbeing Ambitions

Salford young people had the opportunity to tell us what they wanted to see from services. An online survey was circulated and an engagement event took place to gather experiences, views and expectations on services for children and young people's emotional health.

The following 'We Statements' have been developed from the consultation and will underpin our Ambitions for Emotional Health and Wellbeing in Salford.
