Have Your Say – Young Persons Event

Have Your Say event for young people in Wolverhampton

Healthwatch Wolverhampton are looking for people aged 14-24 to join us at a “Have Your Say” event on Saturday 22 February 2020.

Health and social care services are important to everybody and it’s important that young people have an opportunity to help influence change in the services they use, this is one of the reasons we are holding a “Have Your Say” event and encouraging young people to join our Youth Healthwatch.

The event will help us to understand what health and social care services are important to young people for example; mental health, GPs, dentists and social workers etc. The outcome of the event will be that young people have identified a project or projects that they will work on for the next 6-12 months.

The event is taking place on:

Saturday 22 February

1:00-3:30pm

Newhampton Arts Centre

Dunkley Street

Wolverhampton

WV1 4AN

Refreshments including pizza will be available and there is a chance to win an amazon voucher for those who attend the event.
