Our charity, the Young People’s Counselling Service, is developing community-based early intervention and prevention centres to tackle a broad range of issues that affect young people and their families. We have assembled a team of clinical experts, education professionals and commercial specialists to fundamentally change the way that communities support those in need.
Our centre model embraces partnership working and information sharing across multiple agencies to make it simpler for those in need to find help and to find it sooner. By reducing repetition of story telling and potential abdication of responsibility, our holistic vision for community-led family hubs is generating huge interest from local authorities, the voluntary sector and the clinical community.
We are supported by Persimmon Homes (East Midlands) and work in partnership with local authorities, Police and schools at locations in Cambridgeshire. Our first centre is being developed in partnership with Huntingdonshire District Council and William de Yaxley CofE Academy in Yaxley, near Peterborough. Our second centre will be in Wisbech.
As we develop our centres we have not lost focus on our core offering, which is the provision of a free and confidential counselling service that can be accessed by anyone aged between 11 and 16 years old in emotional difficulty. Common problems we encounter include family and relationship difficulties, issues regarding loneliness and anxiety, problems associated with low self esteem and bullying, self harm, abuse, addiction, distress through bereavement or loss, depression and difficulty with decision making.
