The Youth Mental Health Partnership

Our vision is for every child and family in our community to have access to clearly understood, considerate, comprehensive and effective services that advance the recovery of young people who experience a mental health problem.

This partnership aspires to establish the foundations for progress towards this vision and generate learning for how these providers, and organisations within and beyond our community, can be part of meeting the growing mental health needs for children and young people within the UK Jewish community.


About the jlc community portal

As each of us adapts to the coronavirus pandemic and measures to contain it, people and local groups have inspired with acts of kindness providing food, care and comfort. Our communal leadership and vital charities have been working well and working together to assist the community through this crisis.

The JLC connects and coordinates the Jewish charitable sector, strengthens and supports leadership across our community, and magnifies and amplifies the individual voices and collective voice of our member organisations. Now is the time for cooperation and collective responsibility.

Working alongside the Board of Deputies at the beginning of the pandemic, the JLC regularly brought together CEOs from over 60 organisations. Our teams have been working with many more parts of the community every day during this crisis.
This portal is a development of that work, collating advice, resources and access to communal life online, in one place, for everyone across the Jewish community.
