What was our objective?









What was our process?


We attended multiple workshop sessions as a group illustrators to visual note take the information.

Anything unable to be illustrated immediately was captured in regular notation to be converted later

Speakers included: Martha Awojobi, Neha D'Souza, Nasim Salad and Reem Berrada.

We spent to day at the speakers' workshops, which required travel to and working in Kent.

The Solution


Andrew Nichols-Clarke 

Senior Development Lead, Health and Justice Children Programme, NHS England 

Lizzie has been a pleasure to work with on the project. In terms of initial concept and design she has a real creative flair and has brought something truly unique to the box.

At times, having to take all service user’s feedback, including professionals, services, managers as well as young people has been challenging and the need to update documents multiple times. 

Realising that things in the NHS do change rapidly, Lizzie has been able to remain resilient and work really well independently to get things updated.

Previous project

We wanted to thank Lizzie for all her hard work, dedication and patience on a project which has grown from its initial scope.

The work Lizzie has undertaken will form part of key documentation as part of the delivery of the NHS England Long Term Plan, to support the most complex young people.  It will ensure that young people are involved and understand the services they will be supported by and ensure they are actively involved in their own care.

Lizzie’s flair for creativity has also provided us with some thinking around how some of the resources produced can be shared wider than just within our own programme.
