RCPCH &Us - for children, young people and families

Can you help us improve health services for young people like yourself? See how you can get involved and make a difference! And, take a look at our resources, created with and for children, young people and parents.

It might be winter and there may be changes due to coronavirus - but the NHS is here for you

We've made a poster for young people with all the information on how and where to get help. We've asked a few NHS friends to introduce it...

Keep going strong | We need you!
What are young people's experiences of COVID-19 and the lockdown? We've met with young people around the country to talk about virtual health services, supporting mental health, shielding and more...
We've made fun things to do while you are staying home – a health diary to write or draw your questions or feelings between appointments, and an activity pack so you can help the NHS and entertained (plus get a certificate!)
The rights of every child and young person include being safe from harm, having chances to develop, becoming an individual and thriving. Our new booklet is full of activities to explore these rights,

Our guides and activities are created with and by children, young people and families. As a patient, they can help you get involved in improving your health service. As a health professional, they can support you to meaningfully involve CYP in your work.

How can you increase patient engagement and voice in your work? We deliver guidance on how to involve children and young people in strategic decision making.
