These 2 predominantly make up the admin side of the HappyHips team. The HappyHips team were supporting over 100 teenagers and young people who suffer from hip problems
HappyHip's vision is to ensure that no teenager or young adult who has a hip condition ever feels alone after contacting the HappyHips Team. "There is always someone out there, waiting for you! HappyHips for Hips!"
