Advice for Young People

If you are after advice on an issue you're facing or you're just curious then you've come to the right place!

The base has a very experienced and friendly Youth Team who are always willing to sit down with you to discuss issues you may be facing (or that any of your friends may be experiencing). You can chat to them about anything you want to in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

Any conversation that you have with the Team will remain completely confidential - we wont tell your school, your parents, your friends or anyone else. The only exception being if you are at real risk of harm (or another young person is) - in these instances all our staff have a duty of care to inform the appropriate authorities, but the Youth Team will make this very clear before proceeding. If you are in any doubt over confidentiality - just ask...the main thing is your well-being and we'll do whatever we can to support you.

Sometimes talking about issues can be awkward, uncomfortable or embarrassing and telling someone might not be the right thing for you....so we've put together a list of other websites where you can get advice - simply follow the links below for more details.

If you're still unsure what to do, where to go or who to talk to then come in and ask to speak to someone, call us on 01603 463121 or message us on here using the widget in the bottom right. If there isn't anyone about to sort the issue straight away don't worry - we'll get back to you as soon as we possibly can.

Whatever your issue though, we won't judge you or make assumptions - we'll just listen and help.
