About Shaila

“I’m in the great position of leading the fantastic Right Here team of thoughtful, creative and inspiring participation co-ordinators, digital specialists and Youth Ambassadors. We work together to involve young people aged 11-25 in driving and delivering amazing peer led activities, including health and wellbeing workshops in schools and colleges, campaigns to promote greater awareness of health issues for young people and finding ways to make sure young people can inform and influence the policies and services that affect their health and wellbeing – across Brighton and Hove, and more widely. 

My tip for wellbeing, is to be kind to oneself when you’re not feeling great for whatever reason. This might just mean being quiet and cosy for a bit and taking some of the pressure off being perfect or on top of things all the time.”

About Katie


“I work alongside Jacob making sure that young people are involved in the planning and delivery of our research. Keeping our research as creative and accessible as possible is my main aim! My top tip for wellbeing is taking time to slow down; I do a lot of breathing exercises and yoga. I’m also a total book worm and have piles of books all over my flat. Making sure I read for half an hour a day keeps me chilled.”
