Children and young people are at the centre of what we do

We work across the East providing a range of free and confidential services to children, young people, adults and families.

We have been in Essex for over 30 years starting originally as a small project supporting local young people and young adults affected by drugs and alcohol. Since then the services we offer have diversified and we now work additionally:

We work in partnership with statutory and other agencies to deliver joined-up services and interventions to ensure that children, young people, adults and families receive support that is tailored to their needs. 

We want young people to be safe and free to live their own lives, and the work we do aims to inform, educate and support them to do this. We give young people information, support and, where appropriate, advice to understand their options and make their own choices.

We want to provide the best services for the local community and to support and engage children, young people and adults through a range of positive activities to increase their confidence, develop skills and build resilience.

Through our Participation group, young people are involved in the  development and delivery of our services and they participate in the decisions we make about what we do.
