Hosted by Health Promotion North, with guest presenter Nate Austen, this webinar aims to explore the importance of considering the developmental needs of young people in delivering services and how we can create spaces and approaches that are ‘youth friendly’.

Adolescence is a unique transitional period of life with its own associated health and wellbeing risks including specific barriers to accessing services which can be profound for those in vulnerable situations. As such, service providers become very important in supporting and delivering some of their first independent help-seeking experiences with capacity to influence their perception and behaviours over a long period of time. This webinar will look at ways that we can encourage, include, support and engage young people in their own care.
