What support can I access from the hubs?

The hub is a safe, comfortable place for children and young people and families to drop-in and access a range of support and therapeutic services.

Visitors will be able to access links to health, education and social care supporting the mental health and emotional wellbeing needs of children (5 – 15 years), young people (16-25 years) and families living within or surrounding the community.

Young people are welcome to drop in and engage in a range of psycho-social activities; use the internet, chat with professionals, meet young people, take part in relaxed sessions and explore their mental health and emotional wellbeing difficulties in an individual comfortable space.

What happens in the hubs?

The hub is staffed by YPAS professionals and volunteers, with representatives from the wider partnership on selected days. If the staff feel a young person who visits the hub is someone needing the assistance of another agency, they will be referred accordingly. The hub’s staff will gather information and ensure the relevant agency that is most appropriate is notified and an appointment arranged – potentially at the hub or another suitable venue.

Addaction will have volunteers on placement at the YPAS Plus Community Hub.
