The Cabinet Office has confirmed that Devon's Youth Service will be part of their Delivering Differently for Young People programme.

It means that the County Council's service will receive £20,000 from the Government over coming months  to help in establishing an independent social enterprise to run Devon’s youth service in future.

The Council agreed last year to set up the independent enterprise because it was the only way of protecting the youth service from further budget reductions.

When traipsing through a busy city centre or strolling through rural areas, pulling out a huge paper map that takes 10 minutes to pinpoint where you are, is a thing of the past. It seems now that we no longer rely on once trusty maps but have near enough fully turned to digital navigation, as 85% of 18-24 year olds do not know how to read a map.

YMCA Exeter’s 5th Annual Santa Abseil took place on Saturday 6th December with almost 60 local people, young and old, abseiling off the Princesshay car park to help combat youth homelessness.

Fifty-seven people put on their Santa suits, an increase of over 20 participants from last year, and overcame the dizzy heights to step over the roof’s edge and raise over £4,000 to support those without safe accommodation, with the figure still rising.
