The Ask for Health project has a Young People’s Health Network
Youth Action runs the Young People's Health Network for young people age 12-24 who are interested in advocacy opportunities related to health in NSW. Young people can join to share and receive information or opportunities. Sign up below.
We want the Health Network to represent the diversity of young people in NSW. We encourage young people from First Nations and culturally diverse communities, young people from regional areas, young people with disability, LGBTQIA+ young people, and young people doing it tough to apply.
Youth Action created Ask for Health to support young people in accessing health information and health services that suit their needs
Ask for Health was co-designed with young people from start to finish, including young people from rural and remote areas, culturally diverse young people, First Nations young people, young people with disability, young people with chronic illness, and young people doing it tough. Youth Action chose a co-design process so that we were able to accurately reflect the needs of young people throughout NSW.
The voices and ideas of young people have directed and defined the structure of the project from start to finish
Ask for Health provides health information on 20 topics chosen by young people, from sexual health and consent through to how to call an ambulance. All content has been reviewed by Ministry of Health experts to ensure accuracy and is updated bi-annually.
In 2022 the Ask for Health project will also be providing a peer program, Health Yourself
The Health Yourself peer program will aim to train young people in essential health information and how to access health services. We will also provide training for those who work with young people to support them with their health questions and accessing the health system.
