We are The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) Youth Advisory Council, more informally known as the Youth @ the Kids (Y@K). We aim to embody everything that an advisory council should be as we represent youth voice and aim to improve the hospital experience for all children and young people.
In 2011, Y@K made a video about Child Rights. The Y@K felt that Child Rights are something they feel strongly about and met with a team of professionals in the RCH to pursue an idea they had made in a Y@K meeting.

We are a group of young people who come together to talk about our experiences at the hospital, and have our say on how the RCH could be more child/ young-person friendly.
Y@K is here to help the hospital to provide the best possible care for children and young people. Our motivation, optimism and determination will ensure the best possible outcomes for young people, just like us.
