In addition to the drop-in facilities available in the Pop In Centre we also offer an outreach service for young people older than secondary school age, but under the age of 25.
Outreach is a form of youth work that takes place at a venue in which a young person feels most comfortable and is primarily used to inform young people of services that exist in their locality and to encourage them to use such services.
Outreach can also seek to identify, through consultation with young people, any gaps that exist in services aimed at meeting their needs.
Outreach work takes place when workers who are usually centre based, work out in the local community to encourage young people to attend their project or to access services that they might otherwise find difficult to. You can self-refer for outreach work by calling the centre on 01745 857722 or can arrange a referral from your GP or any other professional worker which you might be in contact with.
