Our aim is to ensure that children and young people are supported to stay safe and live happier, healthy lives. We support them to reach their full potential to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and achieve economic wellbeing.
An allocated worker will encourage you to be honest with yourself and give you a confidential space to go over your issues. The service can also put you in touch with other services who are able to help you. You can work together with them, as well as your family (with your consent) in order for you to achieve your goals. We offer one to one support in a convenient venue of your choice (School, GP’s surgery, home).
We also offer the following range of interventions dependant to your needs including:
- Advise and information on drugs and alcohol, blood borne virus screening/advise and physical and mental health.
- The service can work with other professionals and community groups to offer group sessions, training, and outreach provisions with identified groups.
- Advice, support and consultation can be offered to professionals supporting young people who may not yet be ready to access services.
