Young Adult Champions

Two of our young adult patients have volunteered to become our Young Adult Champions. 

Jake Edwards and Josh Margereson will attend events with staff and volunteers to talk about the young adult service and support new young adults as they come into the new environment of St Elizabeth Hospice.

Josh said: "X-Change has provided me with the opportunity to build my independence and enjoy life in such a caring and friendly environment amongst other young people. It has enabled me to engage with schools and other community groups and I am proud to have been chosen to act as a group Champion to help it develop over time enabling more young people to enjoy their transition."

Jake added: "I enjoy being a champion as a representative of the group and socialising with other people in a similar situation to me."

Jake and Josh are happy to come along and give presentations and assemblies to groups and schools. If you would like to organise this, please contact Danny Thorrington on danny.thorrington@stelizabethhospice.org.uk or call 01473 727776.
