New Youth Advisory Panel – vacancies, closing date 31st August

AYPH (Association for Young People’s Health) is recruiting a youth advisory panel

They will be selecting 10 to 12 young people aged 10 – 25 from a range of different backgrounds to become part of their new youth advisory panel.  Panel members will advise AYPH on its direction, be involved in a range of projects and have the opportunity to highlight their views and perspectives on young people’s health and wellbeing.

AYPH state:

What will young people get out of it?
Our youth panel will get the chance to directly influence health policy, be involved in exciting research projects and support positive change in health services and practice. It is the perfect opportunity for young people to gain insight into different areas of the NHS and public health and develop their skills by working in partnership with our team, including participation experts and researchers as well as other young people.

What is the commitment?
We are asking young people to commit to 2 years on the panel (with an opt out after one year). They will meet once every two months online with some face to face meetings when that becomes possible. We want to recruit a group of 12 to 20 young people aged 10 – 25 years old to work with us.

Who can apply?
We are encouraging applications from young people from across the UK with a range of experiences of health, wellbeing and from all backgrounds. AYPH staff, trustees and young people we already work with will help us select a panel which reflects as much diversity as possible. The application is an online survey, however if this is not accessible you can contact us and request a Word version of the application or download a copy here. We will also accept video applications. The deadline for applications is the 31 August 2020.
