The youth support service provide targeted youth workers, who are working with the borough's most vulnerable young people, with the aim of supporting them to resolve difficulties and re-engage with education, employment, or training. We work with schools, parenting support, families and local community organisations. We also provide support and guidance on university applications, gap year options, engagement in positive activities, drug and alcohol advice or even just support on a range of issues or queries that youths may have.
Our young people's drop-in centres provide a confidential place for young people to speak to a youth support worker without an appointment for advice in the following areas:
- careers advice and guidance
- sexual health advice
- university applications
- volunteering opportunities
- drug and alcohol advice
- gap year options
- access to counselling
- engagement in local community activities.
We also provide a confidential, counselling service for young people at Woodhouse Road Young People's Centre.
