I have met loads of new friends and done stuff I would never imagined I would. Having a chronic condition does not have to hold you back!

I love the Youth Room so much! I can get away from it all when I feel swamped by medical stuff and I can just come and chill out in a place where people understand me.

I was really bored in hospital until I was told about the Youth Room. You don’t have to stay in bed being miserable, it’s great!
