What is the YAG?

Chaired by a young person from the Network, this is the peak body for youth and children for the Network. The group meets quarterly and operates as a consultative group, comprised of 20 young people aged 12-25. Young people lend their advice, opinions and lived experience to influence better health outcomes.

The group has a yearly activity plan. Every three months the group rigorously audits a service in the Hospital, reviewing the service's ability to deliver safe, quality and comfortable care to teens and children. The Network is proud to partner authentically with young people from across all divisions to ensure youth are empowered to make change.

Current Membership

The YAG is chaired by Jason and there are 21 members aged from 13 years – 21 years of age. The average age is around 16 years.
