This website is a result of a joint effort by National Children's Bureau, Council for Disabled Children and Forster Communications.

Forster Communications

Forster is the leading social change communications agency, working with clients to protect and improve lives.

We've created this website to engage young people (including those with mental and physical disabilities) with their rights and responsibilities as set out in the NHS constitution.

Our aim throughout the development process has been to ensure the content in this website is not just fun and engaging, but also widely accessible.

To achieve this, we applied the human centred design methodology - which meant gaining insights from young people, parents, health professionals and other experts to co-creating and testing results with young people.
