Children and young people

Children and young people can be affected by drugs and alcohol in different ways. Some of the children and young we help are using drugs or alcohol themselves. Other children and young people we help are affected by other people’s drugs and alcohol use, usually by those in their immediate family. Whichever way you are affected, we want to help you with the challenges you are facing.

We will listen to you without judgment.

What we can support you with:

  • Information and advice on specific drugs and alcohol and how to keep safe
  • Support to make changes and improve our wellbeing
  • Guide you on how to discuss what is going on with others around you
