    Hello and welcome to the community @ankel2306 :) 

    I think that the CP cafe mentioned above is only for those aged 20 and over, unfortunately. You're absolutely more than welcome to post on here and get some advice and support though! I don't know if you've ever heard of CP Teens UK, but it could be worth getting in touch with them as well. 

    Do you have any specific concerns about starting college?
