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 am so grateful for the Youth Room. The staff are really friendly, caring and supportive. They always listen to me.
I can’t speak enough good words about the Youth Service – I’m not sure where I would be without them!
Youth Club helps me to get away from everything and talk to people about any problems I am having. It’s great having my own space and time when I need it.
Brilliant Youth Room – great people and very good at keeping me sane in this place!
I really love the Youth Service – the best idea for teenagers in hospital!
Thank you for inviting me on the residential. It was the best trip that I have been on! I met lots of new friends and it helped my confidence.
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!
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.
The Youth Work course has been fantastic! I have learnt about new theories and skills to give me more confidence when working with young people.
I am proud to be part of a fantastic team who work well as a unit and make activities enjoyable for everyone.
This is a great learning experience for me! I have learnt to work as part of a team and encourage others whilst making a difference to the lives of young people in hospital.
Well done to all of you for recognising the needs of these young people and their families and developing a best practice initiative!
I have nothing but positive praise for the Youth Service. The staff are fantastic, motivated and supportive to both young people and parents.
NUH Youth Service is a fabulous but increasingly necessary addition to Children’s Services here at NUH.
