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 drop-in sessions.
For most of our drop-ins you don’t need an appointment, so just pop in and talk to one of our Youth Advisers. Our Advisers are all extremely friendly, everything you talk about is confidential, and they won’t judge you or your situation.
Our Advisers will either help you then and there, or refer you onto one of our other services. You can find out more about the services we provide here.
Alternatively, you can fill in a referral form. You can then self-refer by bringing your referral form along to one of our drop-ins, posting it to our address below or emailing it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on where to find us please call the main office on: 023 8086 4231.
If you can’t make any of the below times, you can get in contact with us via our freephone helpline:- 0800 515 819
(Free from landlines and some mobile providers, please check with your service provider)
