At the July and August meetings, members worked with film-maker Alexia to create personalised videos about ‘What Matters to Young People in Hospital.’ Alexia taught members how to use their own cell phones to record voices/videos that can be used in short films. Members discussed topics and ideas they’d like to use for the videos including Transition, the use of Youth Workers, Mental Health, Using Age Appropriate Language and more! Members hope to finalise these videos in September and have some of the videos showcase in October for YES’s 5th birthday celebration!
The Barts Health Youth Empowerment Squad is always looking for ways to expand their network. If you are interested in any of the above and/or having a hands-on approach to making a positive change for young people in hospital, please join our meetings!
