Healthwatch Northumberland

Children and Young People’s Development Worker and Advocate
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.

Please get in touch for more information or if you have some feedback about a recent experience which you’d like to share with us.

The Toby Henderson Trust

Toby House, Earth Balance, Bedlington, NE22 7AD 
We offer a safe and secure environment for children and young people to meet peers who encounter similar highs and lows directly linked to living with a sibling with autism.

We have previously been out in the community, bowling, theatre, day trips to, and much more. Whilst based at Toby House we have fun with guests coming in to help us cook and make pottery plates to celebrate our sibling relationships. We also enjoy film nights.

Children and young people invited to sessions should make their own decision if they wish to attend as activities change on a monthly basis. We are located on a bus route for activities based at Toby House and most other activities organised out in the community can also be accessed via public transport.

Sibling Superstars – ages 6-16

Monthly on a Tuesday evening from 5-630pm.  In Easter and Summer holidays we provide an extended service during the day subject to planned activities.
