What do researchers say about working with us

“Wow, really interesting comments and some things I would never have thought of. Had a bit of a giggle at some things but this all seems very useful. Let’s hope they allow some changes!”

“I enjoyed the Young Persons Advisory Group last week.”

“The kids were great, and very engaged – many thanks”

“We got some useful input and ideas”

“We were listening (to the young person’s advisory group) intently and taking their comments really seriously – and finding them incredibly helpful”

“I can honestly say that this is some of the best feedback I have ever received (from the YPAG) – thank you for sending it on to me. I have printed the target out and its now stuck up above my desk!  I have really enjoyed both of the sessions I have done with the YPAG, they are an amazing bunch of people and very enthusiastic”
