Creative Care Kit for Young People. The Creative Care Kits initiative is led by GMCA and since June 2020 has seen around 22,000 Creative Care kits (first edition) distributed to young people who are not online, and so may have been feeling more isolated and lonely as we entered the COVID-19 pandemic. Each kit contains 36 pages of activities, hints and tips on protecting young people’s mental wellbeing and a set of art materials. As well as giving young people something to do, the kits helped to create a sense of connection at a time when they are were not able to rely on face-to-face interactions.

The second edition Creative Care Kit for young people builds on the first version, but with a more of a focus on the kinds of things young people can do to get their voices heard, make changes for the better in their communities, and to find and act on their own passions. The kit is designed for 13-20-year-olds, particularly those who face challenges accessing online resources and who need extra support at the moment.
