“Chilypep has positively influenced my life by giving me an insight into the organisational structures and decision-making processes for health and social care services. As a young carer myself, it has been incredibly important for me to be able to shape these services and ensure the views of other young carers are represented on a strategic level.” – Ratnu Vaidya,19 member of Chilypep VOYCE (views of young carers) Participation Group
“Chilypep has massively helped me become the person I am today through building my confidence, ability to speak up in public settings, have a sense of belonging and ability to make a difference” – Robyn, member of STAMP mental health awareness group.
Over the last 15 years Chilypep has worked with thousands of young people in Sheffield and across the country. We take a holistic approach to working with young people and believe that involving them in decision making in a meaningful way is both beneficial to the young people themselves and society as a whole.
