Young Experts

If you are a young person with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition we’d like your help. We want to make sure our work is truly shaped by the thoughts and voices of young-people themselves.

We call those who generously give their time to help us and the palliative care sector ‘Young Experts’, this title truly reflecting the knowledge and lived experience that we appreciate so much.

Our Young Experts group is for young people aged 16 to 30. Please consider joining our mailing list and we will email you opportunities to shape our projects, take part in research, and a chance to get your voice heard by taking part in consultations. There’s no minimum time commitment and no obligation to take part in every task; making this opportunity easy to fit in with your life.

If you’d like to get involved please just complete the form below, or  email if you want to find out more.
