The Real In-betweeners

Thursday 9th December 2010

Young individuals seeking advice on sexual health, alcohol awareness, wellbeing and relationships are invited to attend ‘The Real Inbetweeners’ event, from 10 – 4.30pm, at the Harpur Suite, on Wednesday 15th December. The event aims to provide advice to young people as they progress from their teenage years into adulthood. The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, will launch the event at 10am.

 

The day will host a combination of performances from young people, with workshops taking place so individuals can participate and discover more details on a number of projects taking place across the borough. Spokespeople will also be on-hand to deliver information face to face in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

 The event will celebrate the achievements and progress that has been made by embracing partnership working, a number of organisations such as Sharnbrook Extended Services, Integrated Youth Support Service (IYSS), Upper and Middle schools, students, independent projects, agencies and Bedford College have worked together to highlight and support the work being carried out by young people for  young people!

 

The Mayor, Dave Hodgson, said: “The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be a difficult time for teenagers and during this period they may need access to safe and sound advice. We want to offer support and encourage people to make the right decisions. This is particularly relevant for young people as they can experience added social pressures and changes and yet have their whole lives ahead of them.”
