New The Source website for young people

Suffolk County Council’s Children and Young People’s Engagement Hub team have launched their new website ‘The Source’ – for young people in Suffolk, which provides information, advice, and sources of support on everyday issues that impact youngsters.
This has been a yearlong project which has involved extensive co-production work with young people’s groups, schools, and colleges to get the new Source website redeveloped.

The new Source website, which launched last month, has a new trendy appearance, improved accessibility tools, a modernised CV builder, a much friendlier layout with only four easy-to-navigate menu sections (Your Future, Your Body, Your Mind and Your Life), and a new ‘Ask the Expert’ and ‘Find help now! Emotional Wellbeing Directory’ to help navigate young people to where they can find support services.
The new Source website is aimed at supporting young people aged 11-18 (up to 25 for young people with additional needs).
The site provides a valuable resource for educational staff, and parents and carers, who support young people, particularly around relationships and sex, career guidance and emotional wellbeing support.

Promotional resources are currently being sent out to schools, colleges and organisations who work with young people to help them raise awareness of the Source website amongst their young people.
