|Young People's Health Partnership|
The Young People’s Health Partnership (YPHP) is a six-strong consortium of organisations working with the Department of Health, Public Health England and NHS England through the Health and Wellbeing Alliance (21 Consortium members) as strategic partners to raise the profile of the health agenda across the voluntary youth sector.
