Bristol and South Gloucestershire HYPE Service

Helping Young People (Children and Families) Engage

hype logo

Barnardos works to transform the lives of the most vulnerable children in the UK.

In Bristol and South Gloucestershire our HYPE service aims to empower children and young people with disabilities and mental health needs and who use community health services.

We promote children’s rights - the right to be heard in decision making and the right to access the best possible health care. We enable children and young people to share their experiences of services with our health partners - Sirona Care, Bristol Community Health and Bristol Children’s Hospital and Avon & Wiltshire Partnership. We involve young people and parents in service improvement, service re-design, and peer support.

What's the HYPE?

Listen to health partners explain how they have worked with HYPE and the impact it has made on their service delivery.
