Focus on – services for young people

Life isn't always easy for teenagers, different times in our lives bring different pressures.

Our Youth Services help young people to meet other young people, try new things, develop new skills, and have the chance to speak out about things that affect young lives. This is done through youth councils, young people's forums and student councils.

We provide a range of activities for young people ranging from youth clubs and drop in sessions, to project work and volunteering.

You can find more information on how we can help young people on our website.
