“I used to think everything was my own fault.

I’m  just learning it wasn’t all just me.” 


A place for children and young people to thrive

We supported Rochdale Borough CCG to develop a more engaging and collaborative way of commissioning children’s services. This process led them to develop the #Thrive service which was completely different to anything that they had commissioned before. #Thrive is a collaboration between Pennine Care, MIND and Link for Life. It is an integrated community based service for children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing. They support them with anything from lifestyle advice, to physical activities, to emotional support. But more than that, it is a place where kids can be themselves, feel at home, feel connected. 


We worked with the team to develop a culture of co-production and we designed the service together with a core group of amazing children and young people.

The challenge 


Commissioning - not knowing what kids want

Most places hard to access - long waiting list, need high needs

Place for kids to be themselves, feel at home, feel connected
