Healthwatch and AFC Bournemouth celebrate the insights of children and young people
27 Apr 2017
Healthwatch Dorset and AFC Bournemouth hosted an event at the Vitality Stadium this week, to celebrate Healthwatch's project for children and young people - Be Yourself: Everybody Else Is Taken".
Healthwatch Dorset Chair, Joyce Guest, said: "It was wonderful to see so many people at our Be Yourself event, helping us celebrate this Healthwatch Dorset project. Over 600 children & young people have been involved over the past year along with dozens of schools, colleges and voluntary sector organisations, so this was the opportunity to showcase all that work.
I'd like to thank AFC Bournemouth for their ongoing support and our speaker, Joely Colmer, whose moving speech made such an impact on everyone.
We want this project to really make a difference so we're also planning a summer tour of the exhibition - more details on our website over the next few weeks."
