September 15 2020: In this submission to Youth Affairs APPG’s Economic Impact Inquiry Opens Call for Evidence, we share our collective organisational and personal experiences in the aim of improving economic and employment opportunities for young people. Together, we are a group of young people (including young people facing multiple systemic disadvantages), researchers, youth support workers and senior managers of youth organisations. We are all co-leaders of the Resilience Revolution. The Resilience Revolution is a whole town approach to addressing the mental health needs of children and young people with its first pilot being in Blackpool; one that both supports individuals to overcome challenges and develop their resilience AND through tackling structural inequalities that impact on people’s lives. In this report we outline and discuss the economic impact of Covid-19 on young people in Blackpool and make recommendations for immediate and more long-term interventions.
