Fareham Borough Council is teaming up with local youth work charities to provide help & advice on a range of issues for young people living in the Fareham Park area.
The Clued Up To Go initiative includes weekly sessions run by local youth work charity, Y Services at Fareham North West Community Centre, Henry Cort Drive:
- On Thursdays, from 5.45pm – 7.30pm, there is a youth club for 10 to 13 year olds with various activities including sports, games, and chance to express themselves through art.
- On Mondays, 3.00pm – 5.00pm, there are Health and Wellbeing Drop-In sessions for 11 -19 year olds. These provide an informal yet, confidential environment to talk about issues including drugs, sexual health, self-esteem, healthy relationships and managing stress.
'Clued Up 2 Go' also includes a local counselling charity, the 'Moving On Project' that provides counselling and mentoring for 11 to 25 year olds. Young people in the Fareham Park area can have regular sessions with a counsellor. They can also find them a mentor who can help work towards realising their aspirations.
Director of Community, Martyn George said: "Clued Up To Go provides a place where young persons can go to mix with their own age group and connect with supportive adults outside of school. We recognise that young people have varying needs and hope that by providing a range of support services, we can widen the number of young people that benefit."
