Not everyone has access to the proper support, and even when they do, they don't always have the right skills or knowledge to give the best advice.  

It's not just young people who need support or advice; having access to peers who may have dealt with a challenge you are currently facing can also be helpful.  

The Channel Community has many Buddies from all parts of the Channel, ready to provide support and advice when you need it.
