Health & Wellbeing

Leaders Unlocked has been working in the Health sector since 2016. Our work enables young people to play a leadership role influencing strategic decisions, provision and research in relation to young people’s health and well being.

“Since 2016 Leaders Unlocked has worked with partners in the public and charitable sectors to investigate, engage and respond to the issues facing young people in relation to health and well-being.”


"The Young Leaders have been invaluable in providing new and fresh perspectives to our work across the key departments of Programmes, Policy, Communications and Research.”

"In this world it’s difficult for young people to feel like they have a say or a voice, and increasingly it feels like the world we’re going to be left is pretty crazy… in the midst of that it feels like we’re doing something positive and we are taking ownership of the situation."
