Bright Ideas

“HYPE lets me take part in activities that make me feel like I am making positive changes to services and helping other young people.”

“I used to feel quite inadequate and lonely but now I’ve joined HYPE that’s changed. Now I feel important."

"Believe it or not I didn’t talk much when I first started but now they can’t keep me quiet.”

“It has been awesome to get involved with this. Met some wonderful people.”

“I made a film of my story and presented it at many training events.”
