Qualified advice workers will be on hand during the festive period to give young people in Lancashire advice and information on a range of issues.

The Line is run by Lancashire County Council. It offers support and guidance to young people between the ages of 13 and 19, and up to the age of 25 for those with a disability.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, The Line is open between 10am and 10pm every day. It opened in 1993 as a local helpline to support youth workers and young people in Lancashire.

Tracy Scotland, who manages The Line, said: “At Christmas, (our workers) often have to help young people with coping with family and relationship pressures.

“But these aren’t their only concerns. We also get calls from young people who find themselves homeless at Christmas, are struggling to buy food and would like a food parcel, need contraceptive advice or who need transport information so they can get home safely.”

The Line is on 0800 511111 or text on 07786 511111.
