A map which pinpoints where young people can get help on issues from housing services to drug and alcohol advice is now live.
The Where To Go For... map has been created by Right Here Brighton and Hove, a project between Sussex Central YMCA and Mind in Brighton and Hove, to direct people to where they can get help.
A spokesman for Right Here Brighton and Hove said: "The map and its accompanying database of services are both stylish and functional, featuring a full hand-drawn map of Brighton and Hove by one of Right Here's volunteers. The map shows the location of over 60 services in Brighton and Hove.
"This works alongside a database which filters all the services into 18 different categories, from drugs and alcohol services, to housing services, to those which offer activities to young people.
"The database also contains information about each service, what they offer to young people, contact and website links, and drop-in times."
Right Here Brighton, which works with 16 to 25-year-olds is now inviting people to use the map at http://www.wheretogofor.co.uk and is encouraging youth workers to direct young people to the site.
