The Source - help and advice for young people in Suffolk

The Source website is designed for young people aged 11-19 (and up to 25 for those with additional needs) to access information, advice and guidance on issues they may face in their everyday lives.

We offer a wide range of information on issues such as learning, career options and training (including live apprenticeships), writing a CV, health and well being, relationships, keeping safe online, housing, money, what to do in your leisure time such as clubs, the National Citizen Service (NCS) and the Youth Parliament (UKYP) and much more at the Source.

More specifically for young people with additional needs there is information on the SEND Young Person's Network and opportunities for young people with SEND including the Local Offer and post 16+.

Need help around work and learning?

National careers information and advice helpline 0800 100 900 (open every day 8am – 10pm).

Need help with an emotional wellbeing issue?

The Source also has a whole new health and wellbeing section providing information, advice and support to young people on all types of emotional wellbeing issues, such as, stress, drepression, anxiety, loneliness, bereavement, suicidal thoughts and feelings, and how to make a self-referral to the Emotional Wellbeing Hub in order to access mental health services (CAMHS).
