Young People Creating Change In Children’s Health
Barnardo's HYPE service was established in 2009 to enable young people and their families to co-design and contribute to change in children’s health.
We have a sister service in Plymouth
We are inspired by:
Article 12 - U.N. Convention for the Rights of the Child
“Children have the right to be heard in all decisions that affect them.”
The NHS Constitution
“The NHS aspires to put the patient at the heart of everything it does.”
The difference we make to young people’s confidence and self belief.
“I used to feel quite inadequate and lonely but now I’ve joined HYPE, that’s changed. I get emails or calls saying ‘hey new event’ and I feel important. I’m able to talk to any of the HYPE workers, as I know they will always listen.
