Wirral Council are working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, Connexions, National Careers Service and Forum Housing to launch Pop Up Talent Wirral. The idea of Pop Up Talent is that young people can drop in to an accessible venue and get jobs/careers advice, information and guidance in an interactive way directly from employers.
The first event will be on the 9th and 10th of April, the Wirral Met Learning Shop, The Pyramids, Birkenhead and is targeted at 16-24 year olds who are seeking work...

Do you or somebody you know smoke?
It might come as a surprise to find out that on average, less than 3 out of 10 16-24 year olds smoke. The number is falling too.
Those who do smoke come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Some don't even admit they smoke. Social smokers and weed smokers - it's still smoking.
There are lots of reasons to have a go at giving up smoking, even if you’re only an occasional smoker. You save money and you don’t stink of stale fags. You also make sure that when you...

More than 200 pupils took the plunge and submitted entries to the Birkenhead Park poetry competition, which this year had ‘water’ as its theme.
The winners were announced earlier this month across all three age categories and, in addition to receiving prizes at a ceremony at the park, some of the winners also got to plant new trees in the park.
In total, 227 young people from local schools and 14 adults entered this year’s competition, submitting poetry and prose in a range of styles.
For the third year running, Wirral's young heroes are to be honoured at an award ceremony so impressive that it's gained a national profile and won awards of its own.
The Youth Heroes Awards, set up in 2011, were founded by local charity Wirral Youth for Christ (YFC) as a grassroots response to the riots that rocked the whole nation.
In the summer of that year, YFC took a group of 'young heroes' on a humanitarian mission to central India. The small group of young people raised over £15,000...
Thursday at the Aegon GB Pro-Series Wirral was a day of upsets, with 3 of the 4 players making it through to the last 4 being un-seeded.

Rice, seeded 2, and winner in Sheffield last week, had his work cut out against the big serving opponent, with Coupland edging the 1st set 64.
