These websites have been designed and developed with a team of young people aged 16-25 years old to help other young people get information, advice and connect with services. They take you to a range of support that is on offer for 11-25 year olds. Find mental health and wellbeing support, activities, sexual health, BME, homelessness, refugee support and advice about speaking to your GP and more! We’ve listed everything you need to know below.
Working as a digital volunteer for Right Here has so far been great. I’ve learnt a lot about working with social media and what it’s like working in an office environment. I definitely think this will open up opportunities in the future and benefit me in future job roles. It’s so great to be able to work creatively at the same time as working towards helping people, it’s the two things I enjoy most combined. I think having volunteers is great both for the charity and the volunteers, as the charity will have passionate people working for them and the volunteers gain valuable experience for the future.

Find Get Give is an England wide mental health and wellbeing website re-launched alongside the #IAMWHOLE campaign at the end of 2016. The site helps young people find local services and provides useful self-help materials.
Where To Go For is a list of services that connects you to everything provided in Brighton and Hove for 11-25 year olds! Covering topics such as mental health, physical activity, money, employment, parenting and volunteering to name a few, Where To Go For enables 11-25 year olds to find the help they need in any area of their life.
We are extremely lucky in Brighton and Hove to have a strong support community for young people, but finding help isn’t always easy. Where To Go For allows young people, professionals and parent/carers to browse through services in the local area.
Doc Ready is part of the Innovation Labs initiative. It was developed in partnership with young volunteers from Right Here Brighton and Hove. It features advice and information on visiting a GP about a mental health issue. It also allows people to build a checklist in order to prepare for the meeting itself.
With GP appointments lasting a maximum of 15 minutes, it’s useful to prepare in advance to ensure you say everything you need to as quickly as possible. This gives your doctor more time to effectively diagnose and treat you. Doc Ready can help make that happen.
