Youth of­fered guide

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Year 9 stu­dents across the coun­try have re­ceived the Blue Light Kids­mart Guide to Life.

The com­pre­hen­sive book­let pro­vides young peo­ple with in­for­ma­tion on a wide range of top­ics such as al­co­hol, bul­ly­ing, drugs, stress, eat­ing dis­or­ders, fam­ily, le­gal is­sues, grief and loss, ha­rass­ment and many oth­ers. The guide pro­vides a prac­ti­cal sum­mary along with web- sites and phone num­bers where young peo­ple can turn for fur­ther help.

It is a joint part­ner­ship be­tween Youth­town and Blue Light, the youth char­ity which works in part­ner­ship with the New Zealand Po­lice. Blue Light act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Bren­don Cromp­ton says: ‘‘The Blue Light Kids­mart Guide to Life pro­vides all the in­for­ma­tion they might need in one place.’’
