Participation Logo ERIC and Participation People are looking for 12 young people aged 11-19 from across the UK with lived experience of bladder and bowel issues to become Young Champions.

We want to hear from young people themselves on the healthcare resources and information you are looking for.

As an ERIC Young Champion you will:

- Meet other young people with similar experiences
- Have the opportunity to share your story and ideas
- Learn how to produce resources for the ERIC website. This could be articles, videos, podcasts, toolkits - whatever the group decides on!
- Gain skills in communication, design and advocacy
- Receive a pack of creative resources to use at home
- Achieve an AQA accreditation in advocating for peers

What does the project involve?

- Online Zoom meetings with the Young Champions group every two weeks for 90 minutes
- Possible face-to-face meeting in February half-term (with expenses covered)
- Presentation to ERIC staff in March 2022
- Being supported by staff from Participation People throughout

If you want to have your voice heard and make a difference for other young people like yourself, just fill in this form.

We are particularly keen to hear from young people who have a learning disability or additional need or who come from an ethnic minority background.
