YOUNG people throughout West Yorkshire can get free help and advice by phone, text or over the internet from a new service.
Brighouse-based Connexions Direct aims to help young people aged 13-19.
The service has been set up by the government with train- ed personal advisers. They can pass people on to relevant bodies for specialist advice.
Help is offered on issues, such as health, relationships, housing, money, education and careers.
It is open from 8am to 2am and there are plans for it to become a 24-hour service.
Richard Smith, chief executive Connexions West Yorkshire, said: " The new service will ensure that every young person in West Yorkshire will have somewhere to turn for advice and support 18 hours a day, seven days a week."
