A Bit About Us
Involve, Include and Listen to Everyone
HYPE stands for "Helping Young People Engage".
HYPE Plymouth started in February 2020 and is commissioned by Livewell’s Children Young People and Families Service. The service is aimed at promoting young people friendly health services through working with leadership, practitioners and young people with lived experience to make changes to individual services within Livewell.
Our aim is to work alongside young people who are passionate and dedicated to making changes within Health and Wellbeing organisations where we will embrace their views and share with professionals and MP's to ensure their voice is heard. As a young person your influence can be shown via media content, participation in surveys and the creation of survey's, sitting on the professionals interview panels, reviewing and evaluating services as well helping create films and re-design of settings and so much more.
As a young person participating with Plymouth HYPE we will ensure that you are informed, feel a part of a team and receive recognition for your contributions and time. We look forward to working with you!
