Support for children and young people

A huge range of our services are provided for children, young people and families – from leisure activities to volunteering opportunities, healthy lifestyle advice to educational activities, work experience placements, safety advice and more.

Mental wellbeing and health

Good mental health is as important for your wellbeing as physical health.

Mental health problems will affect 1 in 10 children and young people, we want to make sure that young people have access to information and advice in one place, and are aware of local services, that can help support when experiencing emotional wellbeing, mental health or behavioural concerns.
