Are You Interested in Improving Health Services for Young People? **Current**
If you are aged between 11 to 19 and want to make a difference to the health care, advice and support young people in the North East receive, then Youth Focus: North East would like to hear from you.
Youth Focus: North East has been asked to work with a group of young people to pilot the next set of You’re Welcome standards. You will receive training and support to assess and evaluate health services, you’ll get the opportunity to visit a range of different health services, find out what they do well and be able to share your ideas for ways in which they might be improved. All young people are entitled to receive appropriate health care wherever they access it.
The Department of Health’s You’re Welcome quality criteria lay out principles that will help health services to become young people friendly and it is important that young people themselves have a role in identifying and addressing the barriers that prevent them accessing health services.
If you’d like to be part of this work or just want to find out a little more about it, please get in touch with Laura Bush on 07763826674 or email@example.com or Steve Watson on (0191) 477 9966 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 14 July.
YHNE Survey **Current**
YHNE have launched our annual survey of youth homelessness in the North East.
The YHNE survey provides the only opportunity we have of gaining a more detailed picture of youth homelessness specific to the North East, however, it is dependent upon the number of responses we receive. There are two surveys, one for local authorities and one for Third Sector providers and housing associations. Findings from the research will be analysed and a report covering trends, gaps and recommendations will be produced and circulated later in the year.
Please find below links for the surveys and pdfs so that you can review the questions in advance of completing the surveys.
The surveys have a ‘finish later’ option too.
In order to ensure consistency of data, please can you ensure a single respondent for data coming from your organisation.
Please can you complete and submit the survey by close of play on Friday 28 July.
Please let me know if you need anything else from me
