This is a very exciting new programme where Cadets will be given amazing opportunities and get involved with lots of activities as well as attending live sessions with guest speakers from our GWH colleagues.
It also offers young people courses to develop their leadership and communication skills, health awareness sessions, and insight into volunteering in the NHS
The NHS aims to have a workforce and volunteer base that is representative of the communities it works in and supports. This means that this project aims to reach a diverse range of young people who have barriers to entering health volunteering and/or a health care career.
Diversity and inclusion are important, and we want to include young people with different life experiences and circumstances. Some of these include young people from ethnic minorities, from different religions or no religion, and different gender identities.
People with different life experiences and circumstances (as well as those mentioned above) could include young people who are:
At risk of not being in education, employment or training (NEET)
Looked after children or care leavers
From lower income families
Those whose exam grades were/may be lower than expected/hoped
Mental ill health, learning difficulties, disability or long-term illness
Refugees and Asylum Seeker
