You're Welcome

‘You’re Welcome’ is a Department of Health initiative which supports the ethos that all young people are entitled to receive appropriate health care wherever the access it.

Services can undertake the self assessment toolkit to benchmark themselves against the principles of ‘You’re Welcome’, develop their own plan of action and engage with local young people to see how they are doing.

Some helpful information about autism - booklet

In 2011, the North Yorkshire and York Autism Diagnosis Strategic Partnership Group looked to improve the information available for families when a child or young person has received a diagnosis of autism. Parents, Local Authority colleagues, health professionals and young people were involved in this project.

The group looked at a range of information already available and produced a booklet with a range of topics and signposting that would be helpful for young people, family and friends in the first few weeks and months following a diagnosis.

The booklet will be given to families by health professionals when a diagnosis is made and is available here to download


Young People’s Rights

Young people have rights when making decisions and choices about their healthcare. This resource has been produced with young people. A local young member of The Flying High Group has been involved with the project to develop the resource for over 2 years.
