Harlow House has a new waiting area…

Article 12 Youth Forum have been working hard since June 2016 on re-designing a new waiting area at our High Wycombe CAMHS Centre.

Young people told us that the waiting area looked old, warn out and not aimed at the appropriate age group.

The group wanted to bring in colour, warmth and a homely feel in order to make children, young people and their families feel welcome and at ease when visiting us.

The group have been working with a local artist and Tom Cox from Artscape to design their own waiting area, including choosing paint colours, furniture and even creating their own art work to create a homely feel.

The group also decided to have gender neutral toilets to enable everyone to feel comfortable and promote equality and diversity.

We hope you look forward to visiting our new waiting area and please feel free to share your feedback with our reception team or via our electronic survey which you can find in the our waiting area.
