    GM Talent Match's Still Hidden report


    Still Hidden delves deeper into hidden young people’s living circumstances, experiences and perceptions, determining which interventions and approaches work best. The need for renewed focus on this marginalised group is pressing – our new figures estimate that over 21,000 hidden young people are living in Greater Manchester. Following up on our Hidden report, we hone in on a specific subgroup of hidden young people who are battling social isolation, poor mental health and lack of exposure to career building activities.

Greater Manchester Talent Match was a Big Lottery-funded programme bringing together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support young people aged 18-24 who had been out of employment, education or training for twelve months or more and who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work.
