There will be activities throughout the day for children and young people, and a free crèche available with limited places. When the crèche is full you are welcome to bring your children into workshops. You are welcome to come for part or all of the day.
Some of you may have heard about the new 'Snap maps' feature on Snapchat. This feature shares the location of the young people for everybody to see. It enables people to build up a picture of where young people live, go to school and spend their time. Please access the following link for advice on how to make this feature safer.
Please see below alert from Public Health England.
Please be particularly vigilant if you hear people talking about "cola cubes" and be aware that this substance being sold as MDMA is actually a synthetic cannabiniod, the product which when mixed with plant material will make Spice.
We have uploaded a brief factsheet to the carer login with more information.
