Helpful information to tackle hate crimes and a range of other health and wellbeing issues will be on offer to teenagers and other young people at a health awareness event in Broxtowe district this coming weekend.
Youth leaders have taken part in consultation with young people and looked at current national trends and these issues were among the most prominent which they wanted more information.
Representatives from Nottinghamshire Police will be advising on the legalities of cyber bullying and a representative is also attending from StopHate UK. There will also be advice on the day on promoting safe sex and healthy relationships.
There are large range of other events taking place offering something for everyone including arts and crafts, a football tournament, a graffiti art workshop, MC workshop, well dressing, information stalls and a campervan kitchen.
There are also lots of free gifts and giveaways as part of the event and the Pulp Friction Smoothie bar project will also be making delicious smoothies and other foods.
Nottinghamshire County Council youth worker Nikki Loydall, based at Beeston Young People’s Centre said: “This is a free event and promises to be a fun packed afternoon. It will aim to raise awareness of issues affecting young people’s health and well being. We also have various organisations attending who work with young people across Nottinghamshire who will be providing information and guidance on health and well being issues relevant to young people.”
