  • Counselling – Due to funding, referrals currently only available across the New Forest for young people aged 11-17 who would benefit from short-term counselling.
  • Focused Intervention Service – available across the New Forest for young people aged 11-25 who need individual more in-depth support with a range of issues.
  • Support Centre drop-in service – available across the New Forest for young people aged 11-25 who need one off or ongoing information, advice, and guidance on all issues relating to young people or referral to other services.

If you would like to be referred to one of our services, please fill in a referral form, and bring it to a Support Centre. You can also fill in a referral form on behalf of a young person if you are a social worker, youth adviser, or other practitioner.
