If you find yourself in a position where you need help, then don’t be afraid to speak to us. The first step is to come along to one of our Support Centres.
Our drop-in sessions give young people aged 11-25 access to information, advice and guidance on any and all issues concerning them.
No appointment is needed and we offer confidential, one-to-one support on a range of issues including:
- emotional health and wellbeing
- relationships and sexual health (including contraception and pregnancy testing)
- drug and alcohol misuse advice
- employment, training, education guidance
We can also signpost young people to other services or organisations which may be of use and refer to our counselling service and our targeted support service.
Our Advisors are all extremely friendly, everything you talk about is confidential, and they won’t judge you or your situation.
If you can’t make any of the below times, you can get in contact with us via our freephone helpline:- 0800 515 819
