In line with the centre being closed until further notice, our sexual health clinic scheduled for Tuesday 7th April will sadly not be going ahead. If you were planning on attending the clinic and still want to access contraception, sexual health screening, pregnancy test or support please get in contact with us either via text on 07443 508418 or email us at with details of what you need and we can discuss the options available with you.
Wednesday 18th March
Unfortunately due to new government advice as of Monday 23rd March the centre will be closed. Youth clubs have been cancelled until further notice and we will contact those booked in for counselling this week individually regarding their sessions.
We will provide updates regularly on when we may re-open etc and are currently working on ways to support young people remotely during this understandably worrying time.
We have just opened a new Instagram page @yiryouth which is designed specifically for people to find advice, support and positive content surrounding mental health, sexual health, career support etc and we hope this will create a platform for young people to talk and share their experiences, supporting each other. During this time, we will focus on strategies to reduce anxiety, stay occupied and active etc with so many people staying at home, so this could be a very helpful tool to follow and share! We will also create a page on our website to give similar information re: the virus and how to keep mentally fit and healthy!
Young people can also text 07443508418 if they need to speak to someone for direct support.
