Rachel started at Teapot with her university placement in April 2018, she went on to co-facilitate an open group at a children's hospital. Today, Rachel supports children in one to one and group sessions, both online and in person. She also leads Teapot Trust's Young Voices group. The sessions were designed to support the young people Teapot Trust supports to use their voices to advocate for themselves and others whilst building their confidence. They provided the opportunity to meet other young people with long term conditions in a fun and engaging environment.
