In November, NHS England will hold a day of workshops where young people will be able to shape the way a national organisation involves and listens to them.

They would like to invite young people to be part of a ‘Core Group’ which will make decisions about what the event will look like – they will have the chance to help plan, prepare and deliver the workshops to young people!

  • Shaping NHS England’s Family Friendly Working Policy for young people who are directly affected by having a parent or carer working for the NHS.

We're looking for young people to be part of the 'Core Group' - to steer and drive the project. You’ll need to able to attend a Core Group meeting on 4th October in London, 5:30-7:30pm (video conferencing facilities available).
