Minding the Gap project

Minding The Gap (MTG) is a joint project by Camden Council and Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to help bridge the gap between child and adult health and wellbeing services. MTG aims to improve the health and wellbeing of young people aged 16 to 25 by establishing a new youth base in the borough. Camden young people, who said they wanted one place to go for a range of services and support, are helping to design the base. Find out more here.

Naming competition

Young people aged 16 to 25 were invited to enter the ‘Name Challenge’ to help us come up with an eye-catching name for an this exciting new project for youth and young adults in Camden. See the animated video here. Watch this space for updates on the outcome of the competition.

    MTG survey of 16 to 25 year-olds - March 2015

    We are currently asking 16 to 24 year-olds living in the borough to tell us more about their health and wellbeing and how they feel about the services on offer to them. This survey is confidential and will provide us with valuable information that we can use to inform improvements to services that young people receive. Find out more.
