Youth Involvement Group

University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) was formed on 1 April 2020 following the merger of University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust and Weston Area Health NHS Trust.

What is the Youth Involvement Group?

The UH Bristol Foundation Trust Youth Involvement Group (formerly the Youth Council) is a fun, pro-active group of young people aged between 11 and 21 years old. We are all Foundation Trust members and we meet monthly to discuss our ideas and things we would like to change in the Bristol hospitals which are part of University Hospitals Bristol.

We aim to listen to the young voices of the South West and help to improve the services available for young people.
