Y Services deliver support to young people across the Borough. They provide a wide range of help, including advice around health and wellbeing concerns, support for young people who identify as LGBT, support for young people with Special Needs and Detached Youth Work that offers street-based guidance for young people. They also provide 'Play Ranger' activity sessions for younger children and even run a Scrapstore!
The Council supports Y Services in their delivery of Open Access Youth Clubs that they run in locations across the Borough. At these Youth Clubs, young people can meet their friends, take part in fun activities and have easy access to professionals for support and advice.

Part of Y Services, the Y Scrapstore takes re-usable, safe, clean waste products and re-distributes them to the wider community.
Membership is open to community groups, residential care homes, youth groups, play groups, preschool groups, nurseries, theatres, festival/charity event organisers, after school clubs, parent/toddler groups, community centres, schools, colleges, individuals and voluntary organisations. Whether you're looking for materials to inspire a craft club activity or are searching for special low-cost materials in large quantities, The Y Scrapstore is a great resource.
The Y Scrapstore charges a yearly subscription fee to organisations and charity groups to be able to access the materials. For details of membership fees, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have clean waste materials that you would like to donate, they can be collected on a monthly basis or dropped off to the Y Scrapstore on a Thursday afternoon between 3-5pm. Visit the Y Services website to find out more .
