Check-It Out Youth Forum

Check it Out

The Department of Health set ‘You’re Welcome’ Quality Standards with the aim of improving young people’s health services. The criteria is based on the principle that ‘all young people are entitled to receive appropriate health care wherever they access it’.

Local You’re Welcome Leads successfully recruited young volunteers aged between 11 – 19 years to join the Check it Out IW Young People’s Forum. The purpose of Check it Out IW is to enable young people’s views and involvement to be incorporated into the You’re Welcome accreditation process.

To date the Check-It Out Forum have developed a website where services and professionals can access information about You’re Welcome Quality Standards and download resources. Young people on the Island can use the website to access general health information and health advice via online “Live Chat” and learn about the work of Check it Out.
