About Us

There are around 23,000 young people aged 12-25 in the New Forest area.

It’s Your Choice was established in 1987 to help those young people by providing confidential and free advice, support, guidance, and advice.


As a youth charity we want to empower young people to make positive life choices and to be there providing help and support to prevent problems escalating into bigger concerns.

We offer information and advice about many issues that affect young people including drug and alcohol abuse, sexual health, homelessness, and mental health issues.

Young people can access It’s Your Choice services in a number of ways:


Please fill in a referral form and bring this with you to a drop-in session. You can fill in a referral form yourself or on behalf of a young person if you are a social worker, youth adviser, or other practitioner.
