We respect you for who you are. We are here to listen and support you. We will not judge you. We are willing to be flexible to meet your needs. Everyone in the team has a lot of experience of working with young people like you. We wouldn’t do it if we didn’t think you were worth it.

Yes. You can choose if you want to meet with one of our team alone, or bring along a friend, a member of your family, a carer or keyworker. It’s up to you to decide.
