Outstanding local organisations providing a wide variety of support for teenagers, families, siblings and carers include
The Youth Commission
The Youth Commission (formally The Hub) have recently merged to expand the range of services offered. They still provide a safe and confidential space for children and young people to access one-to-one emotional support. They support young people to develop coping skills and strategies so they can build resilience, manage their feelings and overcome any barriers they may be facing. In addition to one-to-one support they run groups through out the year focussing on, managing emotions, self-esteem, anxiety, child sexual exploitation, children of prisoners, bereavement, exam stress, young carers, LGBTQ+ and confidence.
Anyone can refer children and young people to their services by calling the Youth Commission (old Hub building) on 01481 724421 or emailing them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
