Supporting young people

The best start, support, services and places to live are what our local councils strive to provide for North East children and young people.

They offer a range of services directly, and through schools, to provide opportunities which will support the young in realising their potential.

Our children and young people have complex needs which can place high demands on crucial services. Local government in the North East has been working collaboratively to ensure that councils can continue to deliver the services they need.

Together we are tacking issues such as funding for the rising numbers of looked after children, youth unemployment and the need to ensure that our young people are equipped with the skills needed to move the North East economy forward.
