YOUTH charities in Fareham are teaming up with the council to offer support to young people.

Fareham Borough Council is working with charities to provide advice on a range of issues for youngsters 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 in Henry Cort Drive.

It includes a youth club every Thursday from 5.45pm until 7pm and health and wellbeing drop-in sessions for 11 to 19-year-olds on Mondays from 3pm until 5pm.

There is also a counselling charity called the Moving On Project.

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 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.’
