What is YouthWatch Stockport?

YouthWatch Stockport is made up of youth volunteers aged 14-25. It sits within Healthwatch Stockport but is led and organised by young people.

It is driven by the ideas, experiences and views of young people wanting to improve rights and wellbeing in health and social care for their peer groups. YouthWatch will connect with other youth groups, schools and organisations to gather views of young people, they can be as creative as they like – run competitions, make videos, set up a YouTube Channel - the possibilities are endless!

Being a part of YouthWatch Stockport is your chance to make health and social care better for young people in Stockport.

I think that any young person, who is interested in health and social care and wants to get involved in a volunteering opportunity, or simply wants to gain new experiences, should definitely consider joining YouthWatch as it will be an extremely rewarding decision.
