New pocket guide for young people in the Winchester District

Press Release: 28/04/2009

A pocket guide for young people in Winchester

Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council have been working together to produce a new pocket guide for all young people aged 13-19 in the district.

The councils called on the help and advice of the Winchester District Youth Council, Youth of Winchester, to ensure that the guide meets the needs of its target audience.

The fold-up ‘Z card’ guide is designed to fit neatly into pockets and contains handy information ranging from entertainment, health & fitness, education & career guidance; through to keeping active and getting advice on the dangers of alcohol, drugs, and smoking.

The card will be distributed through all secondary schools and through partners on the Winchester District Children and Young People’s Partnership (CYPP).

To order a copy of the guide in Braille, large print, or another language, please call 01962 845304.
