IF YOU are involved in a local group or organisation and would like to be featured in an upcoming profile report, please get in touch.

The News will be collating a directory of all the youth organisations and support services on our website. To be included on the site, send in details of the name of your organisation, with an address, contact name and number.

We are looking for young people to get in touch to tell us what you’re up to now and what your hopes and fears are for the future.
