What’s it like being a young person using health, social care and wellbeing services in Dorset, and what changes do young people want to see?
That’s what Healthwatch Dorset wants to find out, so they are recruiting young volunteers aged 16-25, to design and deliver an important and influential new Young Listener’s project.
The volunteer Young Listeners will be trained and supported to gather feedback from other young people about their health and social care experiences and about their ideas for how services could work better for Dorset’s young people. Key themes will then be identified, and findings will be shared with those who make decisions about health and social care services in the county.
The project has been designed to fit with Covid-19 restrictions. Online and virtual engagement techniques and resources will be used, with face-to-face training and engagement events planned for later in the year as this becomes possible.
