Youth support

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
