A group of Adult Care (Level 2) students from City College Norwich have helped in the development of a health advice app that is targeted at young people.
The Norfolk Health Passport provides general health information and advice for 16-19 year olds.
The app covers topics that are relevant to young people: Becoming Independent, Mental Health, Drugs & Alcohol, Health & Wellbeing, Festival Safety, Sex & Sexuality, and Travel Safety.
The students provided feedback on some of the information within the app, to help make sure it is useful for its target audience.
Adult Care student Connor Bowman said:
“It’s a good way for young people to find information and get easier access and get a better understanding of stuff that they don’t really get. It’s quite easy to navigate around and find where everything is.”
Fellow Adult Care student Ash Thorpe added:
“There is quite a lot of useful information on the app and it is easy to use.”
The Norfolk Health Passport app was commissioned by Iceni Healthcare on behalf of Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust.
