YOUTH workers have held an open day to raise awareness of their work to get youths off drugs and alcohol.

Staff at KCA Bypass, in Widmore Road, Bromley, opened their doors to the public last Wednesday to hold workshops for young people to talk about their successes with the centre.

Community worker Tina Ganja said: "It is very daunting for young people to come to us. They are nervous and scared of being judged. But it's not like that, we are very one-to-one. We want people to see that for themselves."

The centre can give advice or even oversee detox programmes, and eventually staff aim to get youths into employment. For more information on KCA Bypass, call 020 8460 9952.
