Youth services

We are making all of our youth services available online, including opportunities for you to talk to youth workers and friends, as well as lots of new activities for you to try.

To find out what’s happening and how to get involved, or if you would simply like the opportunity to talk to a youth worker about anything you are struggling with, please follow the links below for your local area.

If you can't find anything in your area that interests you, you can try signing up for services in other areas, although some sessions have limited places and may be reserved for the most local young people first.

More services will be added as and when they become available, so check the page regularly to see what’s new.

If you are feeling angry, stressed or anxious, you can find lots of resources and links to further help on the Kent Youth Health website.
