We launched our Press Pack to bring media-savvy young people from the Cambridge Children’s Network into the heart of our project!
With our support, they tell their own stories of being in hospital or mental health services – and they help us tell our story, through video, audio and written content. The latest cohort have been involved in numerous ways, including taking part in media interviews and helping at the Cambridgeshire County Day.
They even got to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! We can’t promise a Royal visit for every Press Packer that joins us, but we can promise an experience where you will develop new skills, build confidence and make new friends.
Watch the 2021/22 Press Packers talk about their journey:
