You may or may not be aware that, as a result of the creation of BCP Council, Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) services for young people across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are now delivered by one consistent service. Youth Access Points came into being during lockdown and the Council are now in a place to be able to publicise these services and encourage young people to use them.
Youth Access Points have been created to deliver IAG to young people aged 12 to 19 years old (or up to 25th birthday for SEND) around a variety of issues. BCP has three buildings conveniently located in Boscombe, Kinson and in Poole town centre as well as a website, social media and virtual support via online chat, phone call, video call, text, email or other messaging services.
Particularly relevant at this time of year is the support that IAG offers to young people to find themselves appropriate Education, Employment or Training for post-16. Although Magna has supported students and has forward planned as a part of our transition work, IAG are also aware that these plans can change. If you are a current Year 11 then IAG would be happy for you to share information about its service so that they can support you to navigate the path to your future.
As well as supporting young people to make positive education, employment, and training choices, IAG also offers support around other issues which may impact young people. Further information can be found at its website:
We have also featured below a digital copy of the IAG flyer, which provides contact details and additional information.
