You’re Welcome! Young people Honoured at Awards

Sixteen young people received awards

Young people in the Royal Borough of Greenwich who help to shape health and support services for other young people have been recognised at an awards ceremony.

Sixteen young people received awards at the fourth annual You’re Welcome awards. They were some of the 25 young people who assess youth health and support services in the borough by acting as mystery shoppers. The specially-trained assessors visit services to ensure they are accessible and young people friendly.

Services visited include GP surgeries, sexual health services, children’s centres, pharmacies, school-based health centres and youth hubs. In Greenwich 85 locations have been given You’re Welcome accreditation after inspections by young assessors.

The 25-strong team is made up of young people aged 14-22 who live or study in the royal borough. The specially trained assessors visit services, give feedback and make recommendations about improvements that can be made. Or they award the You’re Welcome award if services are already meeting the award criteria.

The role helps young people to gain self-confidence, increase their skills in communication and gives them the chance to shape the way services are delivered and evaluated. It’s also a way to make new friends, socialise and learn more about the borough that they live and/or study in.
