Services for Young People



Plymouth City Council is taking a fresh look at the services on offer for young people in the city aged between 0 and 19 to serve a wider range of age groups and ensure that when young people need support, they have somewhere to go and only have to tell their stories once.  Most people know about children’s centres, and what we do there to cater for 0-5 year-olds.

However, PCC would like some feedback from students as to how they would like the future to look for young people up to the age of 19. It’s really important than any future services are visible and available to schools.

The sort of questions they would like to explore with young people are:

What do you know about the services on offer for young people in Plymouth?
Do you know what kind of support is on offer?
Do you know where to go for that support?
Do you use youth clubs or centres?
What would they like the Council and its partners to provide them with?

How can you help?
