With further funding from NCEL CYP, we are able to support children and young people aged 5 to 25 who are continuing to be impacted by COVID-19, as well as ease the pressure on the NHS by providing early intervention to mental health issues before they escalate into hospital admissions.

Parents and Supporting Hands
This is a fortnightly group for parents and carers of young people who suffer from mental health or behavioural problems. The parent-led meetings allows the group to learn from each other and professionals how best to support their children. Those who have attended found it valuable to share experiences and look at things differently. Please keep checking back on our website and social media in the coming months, as we will be starting to run these groups once again.
Children in Need helped us to support children, young people, and their families affected by substance abuse in the family. This consisted of both one-to-one counselling for the young person and family counselling for the young person and their immediate family.
