Young people urged to shape new website


Lifestyle | Article

Young people are being urged to have their say on a new website which will bring together all information for them.

The new website will be launched by Peterborough City Council later this year and will replace existing young people’s websites such as www.postiveyouthaction.com and www.purplepigeon.net  and bring all information for young people in one easy-to-access location.

It will feature lots of useful information about youth groups, local activities, education, careers, housing, health issues, young people’s rights and much more. The website is being developed as part of the merger of the city council’s youth service with Connexions to create the new young people’s service from April.

Councillor Matthew Dalton, spokesman for young people, said: “This is a real opportunity for young people to have a say on how best we can tailor part of our service to their needs and make sure we are providing information in a format that is most suitable for them.

“Young people can register their views by filling in a survey on the council’s website www.peterborough.gov.uk. If they don’t have a computer at home, they can use those in schools or local libraries. Copies of the survey have also been sent to all secondary schools in Peterborough.“

Rachel Rouncefield, head of the new young people’s service which will be launched in April, said: “We want to make sure that young people have a website that is specifically tailored to their needs and includes all the information they want to access.

“To help us to make sure young people get the most out of the new website, we want to know what kind of site they would like to see developed, how they would like it to look and what they want included on it.”

The closing date for responses is Friday 30 March and young people filling in the survey can choose to be entered into a free prize draw to win £30 of vouchers for a store of their choice in Peterborough.
