If you care about how children and young people – including those who are disabled or who experience mental illness – are served in Birmingham, then please come to this open event on Inclusive Health organised by Children’s Quarter (and stay on for some lunch and to join us as a supporter).
Children and young people are a quarter of Birmingham’s citizens. One in four is vulnerable to social exclusion. They include disabled children and young people; and children and young people with mental health, and other additional, needs. We say they deserve – and we all need – inclusive health care. That is, health care and services which recognise and accommodate the needs of the most likely to be excluded children and young people in policies, planning and service delivery.
Children’s Quarter is a cooperative of groups which provide services to children and young people and are committed to inclusion.
Join Us for the Event
For this special open event focusing on inclusive health we have invited to speak, and to listen:
- Young people, volunteers and parents involved in our member groups
- Sarah Jane Marsh – the CEO of Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and a founder of Forward Thinking Birmingham – the city’s mental health partnership for children and young people
- Richard Kirby – the new head of Birmingham Community Health Care which provides a wide range of NHS community services including to disabled children and young people.
The event is free. You are very welcome to join Children’s Quarter as a supporter. Membership costs £10 a year and means we can keep you informed of – and involved in – campaigns, initiatives and future events focusing on including all children and young people in future.
