Voice and Influence Groups

If you are aged 11-25 and want to join with other young people to campaign for improved health services then join one of our teams of health champions.

You will meet other young people and share your ideas and experiences. You can earn vouchers and online badges by co-producing projects alongside service leaders.

 

Our groups meet at our base at Junction 3 Library (near the M32) and sometimes online. We often share food and always give time for everyone to get to know each other, to feel welcome and safe.

 

We invite service leaders to attend some of our meetings. They listen to our views and help us achieve our goals.

 

Our groups welcome young people from anywhere in Bristol, South Gloucestshire and North Somerset.

If you want to get involved use our contact form (website) or email hype@barnardos.org.uk. A member of our team will get in touch to welcome you, answer your questions and introduce you to the group.
