NPTshake has joined many other counties around Wales and become part of CLIC, a National Information and Advice Service for Young People in Wales. CLIC helps local websites to provide the best possible local and national information to young people aged 11-25.
CLIC is linked to Promo-Cymru who have been funded to deliver local websites which includes NPTshake and works in conjunction with the Neath Port Talbot Family Information Service which is part of the Children and Young People’s Partnership (for more info see “What is the CYPP?” and “What is the FIS?”Link).
This means its part of nptfamily.com and you will find links and information about shake there too!
