Youth Advisory Groups

We believe that one of the best ways to shape our services is to listen to the young people using them. We run two youth advisory groups, supporting Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Forward Thinking Birmingham. Both groups meet together on a quarterly basis and collaborate on Trust-wide projects, acting together to bring about change for the young people using our services.


Our Young Persons' Advisory Group, commonly known as YPAG is a youth engagement group at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The group are involved in everything from interviewing staff to advising on consultations and it's a great way to have your say about what goes on at the Children's Hospital.

Think4Brum is the engagement group for Forward Thinking Birmingham (FTB), our 0-25s mental health service. T4B gives young people, especially those who have used our services, an opportunity to get directly involved in FTB, helping us to shape the design and delivery of our services.
