Our offer for young people

The Young People’s Service works with young people aged 12-19 across Lancashire. As well as providing our own programme of activities, we also work with other organisations to provide diverse and interesting things for young people to do.

Young people can access our services across Lancashire in various locations which includes a network of youth zones and young people’s centres. The centres offer a safe place to go to try out new activities and learn new skills whilst having fun with their friends.

You can be confident that our staff are well-trained and hold professional qualifications in youth work, information, advice, guidance and social care.

Our services are confidential, the safety and protection of young people are a priority.
