Ask for Health is a web-based resource created by health professionals and young people for young people. Youth Action partnered with NSW Health to create this project to improve young people’s access to health services they need, when they need them.


Health literacy, just like reading & writing literacy, means having the skills to be able to navigate & use the health system & understand health information. Having health literacy means young people can independently & confidently manage their own health. 


Health Literacy Advisory Council



What is the Health Literacy project?


We put a call out for young people to develop and co design a program to help young people in NSW access the health system. We know that programs built by young people for young people lead to better outcomes. Members of the Health Literacy Advisory Council will be paid per meeting for their time and dedication. 


Thank you to everyone who applied for the Health Advisory Council. We received an incredible response and will be notifying applicants via email by the week starting Monday October 12, 2020


Members of the Council are:
  • interested in making the health system more accessible for young people
  • passionate about young people's voices being heard
  • interested in learning how to design a program dedicated to young people
  • advocates for young people and collaborate with diverse voices in community.




Keep posted for updates from the council!
