Where to find help if you are a young person
You may be in a relationship that doesn’t feel quite right. Abuse in relationships can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender or family situations. It can happen to boys as well as teenagers in same sex relationships.
You can find more information about teenage relationship abuse on the local safeguarding children board website.
You can visit one of our youth groups for advice and support. Young people age 13 to 19 years (up to 25 years if Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) are welcome. The youth provisions offer:
- somewhere to go, something to do, someone to talk to
- support, advice and guidance on issues affecting young people
- early help and prevention issue based projects
- C card Condom distribution scheme
- participatory projects i.e. Youth Senate
For further information please visit the Youth Service webpage.
