Young People’s Takeover Challenge

YPHP supports a range of ‘takeover’ activities where young people get involved in informing health decision making. In 2015 we ran four national events to find out more about what happened and be inspired to run your own takeover challenge see our summary report here.  A Takeover day Toolkit sets out how you can run a takeover day activity focusing on health and wellbeing.

Minister and YPIn 2016 and early 2017 we are running takeover challenge activities with Public Health England, NHS England and the Department of Health.  If you are interested to find out more contact us: info@youngpeopleshealth.org.uk

The Health and Care Voluntary Sector Strategic Partner Programme
Working together for better health and care

The voluntary sector is vital for creating an affordable health and care system which is fit for the future.

The Health and Care Voluntary Sector Strategic Partner Programme brings the power of the voluntary sector together with the health system, to improve services and promote well-being for all.

We do this by:

  • Helping reach the most vulnerable, excluded individuals and communities
  • Supporting people to make their diverse needs and voices heard
  • Harnessing the expertise of the voluntary sector to inform national policy development
  • Driving awareness of the role and potential of the sector
