We brought together a team of 12 young people to produce 6 podcasts to help improve young people’s mental health and reduce the stigma attached to youth loneliness. These podcasts feature young people’s stories, provide local signposting information and self-help strategies to support young isolated listeners across Torbay and nationally too.
The young people also co-designed a social media campaign to accompany the podcasts online and learn digital marketing skills.
These podcasts were played across the UK during the pandemic and were nominated for Best Podcast at the Community Radio Awards 2021
