Humber Youth Action Group

 

Working with young people to have their say in improving our services and get involved in Trust activities.

The Humber Youth Action Group (HYAG) has been developed to bring those aged 11-25, together with the goal of helping our organisation improve its services for children and young people. To learn about our services for Children and Young People please click here.

We recognise that young people have an important part to play in improving NHS services for young people. We meet virtually around every 4-6 weeks for approximately 1.5 hours, as well as face-to-face workshops across different locations in Hull and East Riding within the year.

The virtual sessions are fun and friendly where you can meet other young like-minded people to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences of health and health services in your area.

Learn more about the Humber Youth Action Group from Haris, who helped the Trust to create the Youth Board.

 

Recently, the group co-produced a video to help inform other young people of the benefits of joining us. This can be seen below.

Latest Updates

We have had a large number of young people actively involved in our workshops that are aimed at improving services. Details of our next workshop:

25 May 2022, 6.00pm-7.30pm

Our guest speakers for this session are Tom Nicklin, Engagement Lead for Transforming Care, and Bridget Graham, Specialist Public Health Nurse - School Nursing. 

Tom will be exploring young people’s experiences and views of accessing primary care and the potential barriers to accessing GP Surgeries. As part of this, we will be considering the rights of young people, including confidentiality.

Bridget is looking to co-produce a leaflet to be sent to young people who are home educated. The purpose of the leaflet is to help young people who are educated at home to understand the health support they are entitled to and how to access this.

Do you have a project where you would like to capture the voice of young people?

Would you like to co-produce with young people to improve your service? If so, please complete our Co-production Request form here.
