I really love the Youth Service – the best idea for teenagers in hospital!

Young person aged 15

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!

Young person aged 16

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!

Young person aged 14

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.

Young person aged 16

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.

I can’t speak enough good words about the Youth Service – I’m not sure where I would be without them!
