We work with core partners in the Youth Offending Service, Social Care, Housing, schools/colleges, Multi Agency Teams, Social Care and other service providers. Our core business includes assessment and treatment of Mental Health difficulties in young people aged 16 to 18 years.

We offer many different interventions, therapy and support tailored to individual circumstances and disorders.

We pride ourselves in the integration of a youth work model that sits alongside the specialist interventions to support the development of the young persons self identity and build on their social skills.
