New young people’s participation groups

We’re inviting young people across the county to work with us to improve our services. We’re starting two informal groups which will meet virtually every 6 weeks to help us shape our digital health services as well as services to better meet the needs of young people who identify as LGBTQI+.

The new Digital Tech Group ‘s first meeting is on Tuesday 13 December 5pm-5.45pm on Teams where our Youth Participation Lead Charlie will talk through social media and gaming, to hear your thoughts on how this can impact on mental health and wellbeing. They will also discuss how the future ‘metaverse’ might change the way we access healthcare services in the future. Join the meeting here>

The new LGBTQI+ Group’s first meeting is on Monday 19 December 5pm-5.45pm on Teams where our Youth Participation Lead Charlie will talk through the issues that are important to you! Whether you are part of the LGBTQ+ community or an ally, join to meet young people like you who want to make our health services better for young people in the LGBTQ+ community. Topics will include identity, Language that cares and training for staff. Join the meeting here>

There are no right or wrong answers to any of this – all views matter and are important to help make positive changes to how services are developed. If you would like to find out more, contact Charlie by email: Charlie.Presley@ghc.nhs.uk
