We recruited volunteers (aged 12-18) from across Somerset to be Young Listeners. They designed a questionnaire for other young people to gain a better understanding of young people’s health and social care services in Somerset.
- There is a lack of communication between services about young people’s health and wellbeing.
- Services are not communicating effectively with young people, and they often feel left in the dark.
- There is not enough information or education about health and social care in schools, so young people have to find information online.
- Many services do not promote themselves in a way that is accessible or inclusive of young people.
