Raise York Young People’s website consultation
We want any young person aged 13 to 25 to tell us their thoughts on the Raise York website's Young People’s pages.
Raise York has a wide range of information pages specifically written for families, children and young people. Some information will be specifically targeted to those aged 16 to 18, however the information may also be useful to people aged 13 to 25. If you're a young person or work with young people, then we'd like to get your views on how we provide information and what may be missing.
Consultation closes Friday 22 December 2023.

The Yormind website is designed specifically for young people in York and features a wealth of information about mental health conditions and misconceptions, mental health services and their referral processes and whether they are accepting new referrals.

You Said, We Did
Thank you to everyone who took part in our online website consultation. We will now review your feedback and let you know our responses and actions in the below You Said, We Did.
What you say really makes a difference. Don't just take our word for it see what has changed as a result of young people telling us what they think.
|You said||We did|
|It would be better if there was a more meaningful photo used for the drugs, alcohol and addiction thumbnail.||We used a more meaningful photo.|
|The website is difficult to navigate because there are too many topics in some sections.||We revised the thumbnails on the home page to help split up topics and changed page layouts, so the user can expand to find out more information.|
|You asked for information on Money matters.||We have updated the website to include information on Money Matters, including Budgeting, money problems and debt, tax and pensions, banking and credit|
