A NEW Youth Offer for young people in Hillingdon will reflect the diverse, flexible needs of today.

It follows a nine-week public consultation in spring and early summer, when feedback from young people, families, carers, and partner agencies endorsed a new approach.

Hillingdon Council aims to move from a static, buildings-based model, to a more flexible way of delivering services through family hubs.

This will work alongside more street-based youth work and further outreach work. 

The number of services provided will increase, offering more help at flexible times, to support personal, social and educational development and improve wellbeing. 

A digital service directory will also be created, listing all council and community youth services in one place.

Cllr Susan O'Brien, Cabinet Member for Children, Families and Education, said: “We need to evolve with the times, making sure services remain relevant and match the needs of our young people and are delivered where they can access them.”
