As an all inclusive group we welcome new ideas to be brought to the group.

  • We are currently developing a mental health/ wellbeing packages, that we will be trialling at Russel Hall Hospital on the Children's ward over the festive period. As part of the development of these packages we will be gathering feedback from the young people who use them over the festive period to ensure that young people find them useful.
  • We are also looking for young people who would like to take part in a podcast to rise awareness on topics that mean a lot to them:

Do you have a health condition that you would like to educate other young people on?

Do you identify yourself as haven a learning disability, and would you like to educate other young people on your disability?

Have you recently moved into independent living and would you like to share your story?

Have you moved from School to college or from College to University and are willing to share your story about this transition?

Do you have any tips for revising for exams ?

These are just some of the ideas we have come up with but if you have a story that you would like to share please feel free to get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
