We are The Royal Children's Hospital
(RCH) Youth Advisory Council, more informally known as the Y@K
(Youth at the Kids). We aim to embody everything that an advisory
council should be as we represent youth voice and aim to improve
the hospital experience of 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.

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

motivation, optimism and determination will ensure the best
possible outcomes for young people, just like us.
