Young Healthwatch Westminster

Who are we?

We are a small community of young volunteers who live, work or study in Westminster. We share a hunger for our voices are heard in the design and delivery of the health and well-being  services we use. We think it’s crucial that all young people know about their rights, are aware of all the services that are out there and that we all exercise our right to be heard!

 

What do we do?

  • Have our say and become part of the decision-making process
  • Speak to other young people to gather their views about what health issues and services are important to them.
  • Learn more about our rights
  • Get involved in local health and wellbeing events and activities
  • Get valuable work experience

Our role is to influence better health and wellbeing and improve local services. We report our findings to decision makers to help to affect positive change to services.
