Growing up can be an exciting but difficult time for both young people and parents.  Teenagers have to deal with peer pressure, exams, body changes, sexuality and identity. They still need love and support from parents and family. They also want more freedom and to be respected for their opinions and beliefs. Groups and support services are there to guide everyone through this new stage in young people's lives.


Just Youth is a website designed by young people for young people and includes information about activities such as youth clubs, as well as other support services that young people may need.
