CWMT Young Advisors Group 

Here at the Trust we think it is vital to hear and respond to the voices of our young people. We want these voices to help inform our work and activity.

We have recruited eight young people aged 15-23 to form the Charlie Waller Young Advisors Group. Headed up by Lucas Shelemy, the group reviews the Trust's resources with the aim of making them more ‘young-person friendly’, relevant and useful.


The group has also devised a list of whole-school strategies which will be shared and used by the Trust’s trainers, supported the development of some of our podcasts and given feedback on the strategic aims of the charity.

Moving forward, our Young Advisors are developing a ‘top tips’ package for schools that is written entirely by young people with experience of mental health difficulties. Next year the group will deliver workshops face-to-face with teachers and school leads based on this material.
