We are delighted to share the first newsletter of the Young People’s Health Partnership (YPHP). Find out more about our work including what young people shared about their experiences of care with high level decision makers last week.
YPHP supports a range of ‘takeover’ activities and other events where young people get involved in informing health decision making. A Takeover Toolkit sets out how you can run a takeover day activity focusing on health and wellbeing. On 29th June 2017 we supported 6 young people to share their experiences of health services to senior decision makers. Find out what they said here. If you are interested to find out more contact us.

The alliance aims to make it easier for the voluntary and statutory sectors to work together to:
•improve health and care systems
•address health inequalities
•help people, families and communities to achieve and maintain wellbeing
It also aims to bring the VCSE sector’s voice and expertise into national policy making.
The alliance succeeds the Health and Care Strategic Partner Programme, which ended on 31 March 2017
