New Website to Support Young People Through their Teenage Years

The Thrive Bradford website is a new website to help young people (11 to 18 years) navigate their teenage years. It is an easy-to-use website  for advice and support, and real stories from people like you.  The website covers a wide range of issues including: friends and relationships; self-confidence; sex and sexuality; life choices; curiosity and addiction; self-harm and how to get support. The Thrive Bradford website has been developed by young people for young people by Barnardo’s, in partnership with Bradford City CCG and our Trust.
