Plans to expand Worthing's youth services have been unveiled.

One of the projects will involve attaching a youth worker to the town's sixth-form college to build up contacts for young people and publicise activities.

Problems with graffiti in the town will also feature prominently in the action plan for West Sussex youth service.

One project being suggested is to provide positive alternatives to painting walls, such as providing more skate ramps.

The youth plan will also target the health of teenagers, with campaigns and information on issues including alcohol and sexual health.

A counselling service for young people aged 13 to 25, based at the town's youth shop in Marine Place, is being proposed.

Youth workers want to promote and expand Worthing Youth Forum and launch a club for people with disabilities.

The proposals go in front of West Sussex County Council's Cabinet on March 5.

The report also emphasises the role the youth service plays in the county's community safetystrategy aimed at reducing crime.
