Who is the service available to?

The service is for children and young people up to 18 and young adults up to the 25 living with a disability or is a care leaver. We will also support the family and friends of a child, young person or young adult.  

What does the service provide? 

We provide two types of services - a drop-in and an appointment service for more structured support.

The drop-in service: 

  • The drop-in service is a very relaxed place where children and young people can come in when they want to talk to someone if they want to. There’s no pressure, they can just hang out, have some refreshments or play games.
  • It’s friendly and comfortable environment for children and young people to talk about whatever is on your mind such as stress, bullying, self-harm, eating problems, confidence, anxiety, anger, depression and lots more.
  • We have a team of therapists, youth workers, and trained volunteers who can provide different types of support. This includes one-to-one support where therapeutic strategies may be used, giving advice and guidance, signposting or referring to other services if appropriate, and Wellbeing Workshops and Peer Support Groups.

 The structured appointment service

  • This brief therapy service provides a set amount of sessions for a child or young person – they can decide this with their therapist in the first session.
  • These sessions enable them to learn more about a problem they’re facing and learn about strategies that can help.
  • The structured one-to-one therapeutic sessions are available through a referral by your school or GP to the Single Point of Access (SPA).
