Virtual Youth Hub – To respond to COVID-19 we have launched our virtual youth hub, this is a place that’s full of loads of information that has been split up into information for young people, parents and carers and those working with young people. We have added a youth forum within the website so that young people can come together and discuss their thoughts, feelings and anything else at this time. This is monitored by our staff and some of our partners.

Volunteen Telephone Support Service – In addition to the youth hub, we have also launched our telephone support service, given that some of our staff are not out and about travelling, they have a little extra capacity to take 1:1 referrals for young people that would like to share their issues, discuss future opportunities or even just talk or rant to someone. Young people can make a self-referral via our website.
