Young People’s Health Partnership
The Young People’s Health Partnership (YPHP) is a seven strong consortium of organisations working with the Department of Health, Public Health England and NHS England as part of the Health and Care Strategic Partners Programme. The partnership includes Addaction, Ambition, Association for Young People’s Health, Brook, CLIC Sargent, Streetgames and Youth Access.
YPHP works to:
- influence and shape the health system to understand young people’s needs for age-appropriate services
- equip the voluntary youth sector to work in partnership with the health system
- support young people to exercise empowered and active voices in the healthcare system
Youth Access leads much of YPHP’s work on mental health, integration and the social determinants of health.
