Youth support

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9am and midday on Saturday 21 October, customers will be unable to view documents on the site during this time.

Most young people make their way to adulthood happily and successfully, learning how to deal with the usual problems of adolescence along the way - with help from family, school and community.
For some young people it is not so straightforward, which is where our 'youth and community development leads' can help.

We can help:

  • those who are vulnerable
  • those who have additional needs
  • those whose lives are messy or difficult

We will:

  • help all young people with places to go, things to do and trusted people to talk to
  • bring our professional resources and skills to support vulnerable young individuals and groups
  • support communities and independent groups in providing constructive things to do and places to go for young people

Advice for young people

If you are a young person, information about the range of services and activities for you can be found at Yor-Zone - it also has information about people who can help you.

You can also get involved on the Yor-Zone Facebook site.
