Youthlink is about making connections. It’s about connecting different components together with the central theme of ‘YOUNG PEOPLE’.
Youthlink feeds into the East Hampshire Strategic Children and Young People's Partnership, looking at trends and issues
across the district to fill gaps in provision.
The Partnership is made up of senior members from The King's Arms, Children's Services, the Police, Young Offenders Team, CAMHS, School representatives and EHDC.
Youthlink is about sharing knowledge, best practice and supporting those who work with young people. We have annual forums to discuss topical subjects that affect the community and smaller Youth Worker Together forums to support and up-skill Youth Workers, shaping what we deliver in the region.
Regular newsletters are provided to keep the community up-to-date.
Youthlink hosts an annual Youth Conference for groups of year 9&10 students from the secondary schools in the region every year. We also develops awareness of what services are available to young people.
So many agencies, charities, service organisations and programme leaders are dedicated to serving and supporting young people. Establishing strong communication networks enable everyone to help young people by sharing strategies, services, ideas and good practices.
