The Lowdown (www.getthelowdown.co.uk) is a partnership between Young Scot and the Scottish Government.
The service has been developed from extensive consultation and research from those working in the youth heath field to help teenagers who are at risk of poorer health outcomes, have improved life chances.
The website, http://www.getthelowdown.co.uk aims to support vulnerable young people with upfront messages on issues that matter to them, including, relationships, sexual health and well-being.
It also looks to address fundamental health inequalities and develop resilience among young people, by offering reliable and relevant information delivered in straightforward language, using cutting-edge interactive digital technology.
The site features a comprehensive 'Contacts Directory', listing over 500 local health services from across Scotland, and is backed up by a free and confidential phone line (0808 802 4444) that young people can access to get further information personalised to their needs.
So What's The Impact?
Teenagers who are most in need of improved life chances have relevant and reliable information to help them make better life choices.
