A NEW free and confidential information and advice line called On-Line will give young people in Wiltshire a seven day service.

The county council's youth development service set up the service, which will be open from 10am till 10pm.

Callers and texters will be put in touch with a youth worker who can give them advice on a wide range of issues, including careers, education, money, health, housing and sport.

Richard Martin, On-Line co-ordinator said: "This new service will mean that young people can have access to free and confidential advice and information on the phone, by text or on the Internet. "

The freephone number is 0800 511 111 and the text number is 07786 511 111. On-line has information on youth projects, colleges, advice agencies and clinics.
