New Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch

Youth Links

Being a young person in the world today is full of challenges.

Good news! – help is available to assist when we need it.

We all have bad days sometimes for whatever reason but we don’t need to work things out on our own.

The Kids Helpline programme also assists Teens and Young Adults by providing information and support for:

  • Dealing with loneliness.
  • Family relations and respect in relationships.
  • Gender identity, bullying, cyber-bullying and sexting.
  • Risk-taking and coping with emotions.
  • All about depression and thoughts of suicide.
