Healthwatch Trafford’s young volunteers launch new guide to local health and care services

If you’re aged under 21 and you live in Trafford, this is your trusted guide to local health and care services – brought to you by Healthwatch Trafford’s media squad, a team of local volunteers aged 13-18. Their information has been verified by local experts so young people know it can be trusted. If you have any problem or question about your physical health, mental health, sexual health, or your (or your family’s) care, then this is the right place to find help!

• You can submit a question to the media squad and they’ll research the answer for you.

• Or you find out more about the media squad and let us know if you’d like to volunteer with us!

Andrew Latham, Chief Officer of Healthwatch Trafford said:

“We are delighted to be able to launch this website for young people in Trafford. Easy access to information about services is vital in helping young people get the support and help that they need. Our young volunteers have worked really hard with our staff team and local service providers to develop the website and we hope it will be a well-used resource.”
