    • YES East Sussex is the targeted information, advice and guidance (IAG) service for 16-18 year olds. Commissioned by East Sussex County Council and delivered by Medway Youth Trust.

      YES East Sussex provides impartial targeted IAG to meet specific and sometimes complex needs of young people, working with some of the most vulnerable and disengaged from young people in the county to break down barriers to participating in learning, training and employment with training.
