Youth Service Review Needs Your Views

by timpickstone on 31 August, 2009

Time is running out to tell us what you think about services for young people.

Bury Council is reviewing its Youth Service, and is keen to hear from as many people and organisations as possible. It will then produce a report in November.

The Youth Service promotes and delivers personal and social development to 11–25 year olds. It operates out of four local authority centres – in Radcliffe, Whitefield, East Bury and Elton – while the Phoenix Centre in Prestwich is used in partnership with Prestwich Methodist Youth Association.

The service supports the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and many others including Assessment and Qualifications Alliance, Junior Sports Leaders Awards. Staff and members are involved in Youth Action Groups, Youth Cabinet and the United Kingdom Youth Parliament elections.

Many partners work with the service, such as Connexions, the Youth Offending Service, and schools. Services include advice and information, joint working to support unemployed young people, teenage pregnancy groups, activities for young people with disabilities, and outdoor adventure activities.

To make your views known, contact youthservicereview@bury.gov.uk or see the service’s Facebook group by Sunday, September 20. For more detail and to ask questions, call Amy Svensson, improvement adviser, on 0161 253 6549.
