Adur Find It Out Centre

If you are aged 13-25 you can drop in to a FindItOut centre to get advice and information. If you want to talk to someone in confidence you just need to make an appointment. 

If you have an issue that they can’t help you with, they will always do our best to put you in touch with somebody who can.

As well as advice and information there is free internet access.
