New online resource with advice and support for young people

Thursday, 19 December 2019

We've created a new online resource for young people to find trusted information on relationships and sex, emotional health, wellbeing, drugs and alcohol.

Young Central Bedfordshire provides advice and guidance aimed at young people aged 11-18 years old, with links and information on subjects that concern them.

Created with the input of young people, the online resource also provides a route to other additional services, such events and activities happening in Central Bedfordshire, and education, training and employment, such as links to our Find Your Future websiteYouth Support Service and other organisations.

Our Executive Member for Families, Education and Children, Councillor Sue Clark, said:

There is a huge amount of information online for young people, but sometimes it can be hard to know where to turn for information that is reliable. That’s why we’ve created the Young Central Bedfordshire online resource, to provide young people aged between 11-18 years old with advice, support and guidance, all in one place.

We’ve consulted young people and organisations who work with young people to compile and curate some of the most trusted sources of information on issues such as keeping safe, relationships and sex, and emotional health and wellbeing.
