Youth Sessions 13+
For the past 13 Years, we have provided the rural area of Rothbury and Upper Coquetdale with a youth focused service that has for the past three years been funded by the Big Lottery ‘Reaching Communities Fund’.  The aim of the project is to provide rural young people with a sense of belonging in their community and to provide them with increased access to five main key areas of need- Information, Support, Opportunities, Experiences and Involvement. Our main activities: • Provide young people aged 12-25 years with a ‘Rural Youth Hub’ situated in the town center of Rothbury and a satellite hub based at Dr Thomlinson C of E Middle School. These are safe, modern, well equipped and accessible places that give young people access to the main key areas of need as identified above. These places embrace current youth culture, new technologies and up to date equipment to take advantage of the Rothbury area becoming one of the first rural places in the UK to get Super-Fast Rural Broadband. • Provide focused youth information and support sessions in the evenings and during the day, looking at issues such as employment, training, health and relationships. We have a referral process for young people. • Offer young people specific experiences and opportunities which will build confidence and also aim to give them a better perception of life.

Healthwatch Northumberland (Adapt NE), Burn Lane, Hexham, Northumberland, NE46 3HNHealthwatch Northumberland helps people of all ages and all backgrounds (including children and young people) to have their say about how local health and social care services should be delivered (e.g. GPs, hospitals, opticians, dentists, chemists and care homes). We listen to people’s feedback (good and bad) about services which you have used and report this back to those in charge of planning, providing and delivering them so they can make improvements, where needed. Furthermore, we offer support to people who need it to make a complaint about an NHS Service that they have used through our “Independent Complaints Advocacy Northumberland” (ICAN) service. You can put in a complaint yourself or with the support of an adult (e.g. a parent) and/or one of our advocates.Healthwatch Northumberland also has a “Children and Young People’s Reference Group” and we are always looking for new members! The main aim of this group is to ensure young people (up to the age of 25) are heard and have their say in how local health and social care services should be delivered in Northumberland.
