THERE was a warm welcome for young people as Doncaster Council launched a new drop-in service for youngsters in its care

A group of fire jugglers performed at the event to open what the authority hopes will be improved services for the over-16s it looks after.

The service has moved to a new building - Elmfield House on South Parade - and extended its hours.

The project has been supporting young people for 16 months but the changes will mean young people get a much better service, including new drop-in sessions where they can meet other people in a similar situation.

The extra space at Elmfield House means there is also room for other organisations too.

Coun Eric Tatton-Kelly, cabinet member for the children, said: “Moving to new premises and expanding the service means we can vastly improve the help and support we give to young people as they move from our care in their transition to adulthood.”
