Over the last year a group of seven young people from AfC have been supporting professionals from Forster Communications to build a new website for the NHS and make sure that the website was accessible to children and young people with additional needs. That website is now live and it's nice to see those young people and AfC listed in the credits on the website!
We asked one of the young people to say something about being involved in this process and she said:
"I was asked over the past year to come to consultations to help make a website for disabled young people so they could find out more about the NHS. This was such a great opportunity. It was even better than I expected it to be as they made it really interactive and helped us to be creative. I learnt so much and I'm so proud that we've made a website that's accessible to all the young people out there."
