Watch the video below to listen to our Youth Advisor, Jane, talk through what type of support a young person can receive for a number of different issues, here at It’s Your Choice.
Information, Advice & Guidance Support Centres
Young people can access a Youth Advisor for free and confidential Information, Advice & Guidance through one of our Support Centres across the New Forest.
Youth Advisors are highly trained, non-judgemental and friendly, and can provide advice, support and ideas as well as just listen when needed. If we are unable to help directly, we will signpost to the most appropriate agency. No appointment is required but it may be necessary to wait a while to be seen if the Support Centre is busy.
We have a strict confidentiality policy which means we don’t tell other people about you or your situation without your permission. However, if we think that you, or someone else may be at risk or in danger, we may need to get help from others to keep you safe. We would talk to you about this first.

This video lists the type of support we can give a young person, please just be aware this will currently be done via phone, email or video conferencing, not face to face currently due to COVID-19 restrictions – there will be a waiting list for any support at this time as we respond to the need in the New Forest in a COVID secure way.
