Youth Charter

Lead: NHS Leeds CCG

Period: 2nd Aug 2021 - 19th Sep 2021

We are co-producing an agreement between young people and senior leaders on things that matter the most to young people about their health, also known as a youth charter.

Brief description of project

We are collecting  young people’s views, thoughts and experiences of the healthcare system to feed into a health based youth charter for the city of Leeds.

Who did we speak to?

We heard from 39 young people through focus groups and surveys.

What and how did we ask?

We asked three main questions through a survey and focus groups. Links are below in the How you can help section:

Thinking about the health care system today, what don’t you like?
Thinking about the health care system today, what do you think works well?
What would your dream health care system look like?

How can you help?

There are a number of ways you can help support this piece of work.

Complete our survey to sense check the themes for the youth charter. This survey will launch soon, as we are currently going through feedback from our pervious survey, to shape the themes of the youth charter.

You can also support by sharing the link the to survey once this is ready with young people you know.

What will we do?

All the feedback we receive will be used to shape the themes of the youth charter. Once the themes have been developed we will sense check this with young people.

Once the youth charter is complete, we will hold a launch online through social media for senior leaders to come and sign the charter. Details of the event will follow.

The youth charter will be published on this website and also will be sent to anyone who shared their contact details in the survey.
