Engaging young people and giving them a voice
Healthwatch Camden has a legal responsibility to listen and learn from the experiences of children and young people who use health and social care services.
By providing a strong voice for all age groups in the community, we can ensure that health and social care services are tailored to our diverse community needs.
Children and young people have their own ideas of how they would like health and social care services to be, and also have a clear idea of which issues are important to them.
We aim to engage with young people to find out what’s important to them, so that we can tackle any disadvantages and health inequalities they may have. Poverty, disability discrimination and poor housing are some of the challenges they face.
We’re out in the community talking to young people and also have a young volunteers working with us at events and enter and view projects.
