‘Boston Youth Ambassadors’ project, delivered by Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) in association with Heritage Lincolnshire, have been working with a group of young people to develop a website launching today, specifically designed for young people in Boston to access information relating to their daily lives, at the touch of a button.

The website provides a one stop shop for young people to learn more about how they can access local help and support, with themes including health and wellbeing, education and training, work experience and volunteering opportunities.

The findings from research carried out with young people in Boston has led to the development of the website, where young people say they find it difficult to access the local information they need in one place. Young people told us that whilst school and college information is helpful, they would also like to be able to access community information relating to transition points in their lives.

The ‘YouthLincs’ website will be launched by LCVS on the 30th April 2021. Angela Dobson, Senior Area Officer at LCVS said “We are keen to launch the website now to be able to provide the information that young people are telling us they need and would like. Also, as the website is continuing to be developed we would like to encourage young people to contact us to get involved in the project, including providing further content for the website.” Angela went on to say, “We are absolutely delighted with the work the young people have completed so far and so grateful for their support.”

From Friday 30th April the ‘YouthLincs’ website can be accessed here https://youthlincs.co.uk/

This is just one opportunity for young people to get involved in this community project. We would like to invite young people aged 16 – 25 to contact us to find out more about how they can get involved and have access to a range of opportunities to help their personal, professional and creative development. More information is available on LCVS website.
