Children & Young People's Zone

Welcome! This is where you can get helpful guides, find out about events you can be a part of and where we show off your ideas and work.

We want you to share your thoughts and feelings so we can understand what makes you happy and what worries you. We will listen carefully and take your ideas seriously, using them to improve the care you get.

This part of our website is just for you – you will find useful handbooks, discover how you can be a part of our activities and see the amazing work that our children and young people do. We will also share stuff we think you might find interesting…

This is your space – if you have any ideas about what you would like to see here, we would love to hear from you! Just email us at [email protected]

Meet Neo

Hello – I’m NEO the Five Rivers Children’s Participation Champion. Whenever you see me, you know I want to hear about what you are thinking and feeling. Here’s your chance to get involved with lots of stuff at Five Rivers!

Upcoming Events

We plan a calendar of special events around the ideas that come out of our Youth Council meeting every year that you can join in with. Often these workshops are creative where you can write, draw, sing or make music. Sometimes they are more about talking to each other about things you like or dislike. They are always about the things you have told us you are interested in through the Youth Council – you are in charge!

We still have some work to do on this calendar so please watch this space, it’s coming soon!
