About the group

YPAG KSS has been funded initially for one year by a local Sussex based charity called Rockinghorse.

We meet on Saturdays 10-12pm every 2 months at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton.

We have a membership list of about 25 C&YP aged 8 -18rs with average attendance at the Saturday meetings of about 12-15 C&YP.

We also run a parallel Parent & Carers group who meet in a separate room at the same time and provide input on the same projects presented to the C&YP.
