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.
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 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 can’t speak enough good words about the Youth Service – I’m not sure where I would be without them!
I really love the Youth Service – the best idea for teenagers in hospital!
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!
Brilliant Youth Room – great people and very good at keeping me sane in this place!
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 am so grateful for the Youth Room. The staff are really friendly, caring and supportive. They always listen to me.
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.
I am proud to be part of a fantastic team who work well as a unit and make activities enjoyable for everyone.
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.
Well done to all of you for recognising the needs of these young people and their families and developing a best practice initiative!
NUH Youth Service is a fabulous but increasingly necessary addition to Children’s Services here at NUH.
I have nothing but positive praise for the Youth Service. The staff are fantastic, motivated and supportive to both young people and parents.
