To understand how services could work better for them, Healthwatch Milton Keynes explored the following questions:
• What are young people’s wellbeing related concerns for the future?
• What changes to services would have a positive impact on young people’s lives?
• To what extent are young people aware of existing services, and how can services be better promoted to young people?
We know that there is a lot of work is being carried out around youth services and provision, and a lot of organisations committed to supporting young people. We hope that the information within this report helps inform some of that work, and the ways in which it is promoted and delivered to the young people of Milton Keynes.
Healthwatch Milton Keynes will be extending an invitation to young people to be involved in a series of workshops to develop a targeted project, based on the suggestions for improvement outlined in this report, that will make a positive difference to the wellbeing of young people in Milton Keynes.
