One our longest serving Young Health Champion Becky has been busy writing blogs for the DYHC wordpress site www.dudleyyhc.wordpress.com Even though Becky has been finding lockdown personally challenging, as always, she has been thinking about how she can support other young people. Becky has produced a number of flyers for young people on handwashing, things to do during lockdown and how young people can look after their emotional health. Becky also volunteered to make a leaflet more ‘young person friendly’ that the Safeguarding Board had produced for young people. This offer was well received and now Becky is working on an ongoing basis with the Safeguarding tean to help make information more accessible to young people
We have also been working with Ash – who is a YHC and training to be a dentist. Ash has written a number of blogs which get uploaded on a weekly basis and provided information on dental hygiene during lockdown and other health related information. Ash has also been shopping and collecting medication for local residents in Stourbridge.
