What we do

We work with young people between 11 and 25. We support them by providing a range of services and activities focusing on their health and well-being. The services include one-to-one advice, information, and support. Counselling and Mentoring. Small well-being groups for social skills and anxiety. Activities include a performing arts group, a youth club, a youth group for quieter young people, a sports club and Holiday Clubs. We also work with young people through detached and outreach work and offer educational workshops on substance misuse issues.

We aim to enable the young people who use our service to develop the knowledge, life skills and confidence needed to make informed choices and to manage their sometimes very challenging life circumstances. In so doing, helping them achieve their full potential in education, employment, family life and society.
