Youth provisions

The youth provisions provide safe, supportive, informal learning and recreational fun activities across the borough.

Young people can expect support, advice and guidance and up to date information from our trained staff team on issues that are affecting young people. Support, advice and guidance is informal, engaging and interactive. This includes advice on drugs and alcohol, smoking, sexual health and healthy lifestyles.

We aim for young people to be informed, explore their values and beliefs and to discuss risk-taking behaviours and the consequences. This enables young people to make positive, healthy choices about their lives, reach their full potential and thrive.

Young people can seek one-to-one support when they need it, on any worries or concerns they may have. This could include, self-harm, mental health and wellbeing, Teenage Relationship Abuse (TRA) and hate crime - what it is and how to report it.

The Cheshire West and Chester Youth Service delivers a variety of youth provisions across the borough and is free of charge to attend.
