Refer a young hospital patient or adolescent
with chronic health condition

Having worked in partnership with London's major hospitals over the past decade we have developed a specialism in being able to provide additional support for young patients who are transitioning from paediatric hospital services to adult hospital services.

This is often a highly challenging time for young patients and a report from the Care Quality commission highlights the need for services like the one Renaissance Foundation provides. 

We do not charge for our services and like to work in collaboration with nurses consultants and medical professionals to receive referrals and work with teams to help ensure the young person makes the best transition they can.

Our involvement has been known to increase medical compliance and has also been praised as a positive way to decrease unnecessary hospital admissions from young patients. 

Renaissance Foundation Referral Criteria

  • Referral from a medical professional who is close to the young persons medical needs and requirements.

  • The young person must be diagnosed with an acute or chronic health condition

  • Young person is aged between 13-16 (for exceptional cases we will consider a referral outside of these ages)

Would you like us to deliver our Award winning i-Can Do It Personal development workshop at your hospital ward or with your hospital youth forum? Contact us to see how we could get started.

Referrals can be made ahead of a young person actually joining the Renaissance Foundation support programme.
We pre arrange on-boarding days throughout the year typically during school half term holidays. Please contact our Youth Programme Manager Rachael for further information in regards to this:
