Information & opportunities for young people in Scotland

PROJECT: Help improve support for asthmatics!

Do you live with a chest condition like asthma? Or have a friend or family member who does?

We’re looking for young people aged 16-21 to take part in a co-design workshop with Young Scot to tell us about your experiences of living with a chest condition, or knowing someone who does, and help create new ideas for how young people could be better supported to manage their condition. Young Scot will cover all your travel costs on the day and provide dinner.

Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) have teamed up with Young Scot to hear from young people about how CHSS can engage with and support those with chest conditions and their families across Scotland. As Scotland’s health charity, CHSS are keen to ensure they understand the priorities of young people living with chest conditions and how they can best be supported.

Young Scot co-design sessions aim to be fun and interesting, giving you the opportunity to have your voice heard, develop your teamworking skills, and improve the experiences of all young people who live with a chest condition in Scotland.

When and where?

While you’re here….

Take part in this online survey here for young people aged 13–25 who live with asthma. This survey is run by The National Asthma and COPD Audit Programme (NACAP) and results will be used to find out which areas of asthma care young people and families feel could be improved.

Up for the challenge?

Let us know you’re interested by filling in the online registration here or email us at codesign@young.scot with:

For more information or if you have any questions, please contact the Co-design Team on 0131 313 2488 or codesign@young.scot or message Young Scot on Facebook.

We can also provide the information in any other formats if required.
