Other teams and support

More direct support is available through our other youth teams, linked below. We may already be working with you through these services.

Reconnect youth team

If you you’d like support with drug or alcohol misuse, you’re pregnant or a parent at a young age, or if you feel you may be experiencing exploitation or need help around unsafe relationships, our Reconnect team can provide one to one support for you.

Reconnect work with young people aged 13–18 years and up to 25 years for people with a special educational need or a disability.

For more info, check this page.

Targeted youth support work

If you’re not fully engaged at school or college, feeling uninterested or uncertain about employment or training, or you’re finding yourself drawn into negative or anti-social behaviour, then our targeted youth support team can help you.

This team provides one to one support to help you make informed, positive choices and help you feel more in control of your future.

For more info, call on 0118 937 3641 option 5 or email.

Youth Offending Service (YOS)

If you are known to the police or you have been referred by children’s social care, YOS will work with you.

They’ll help you to understand how offending behaviour effects you as well as others and to avoid offending again.

See here for more information on this team and what happens if you are in trouble with the police.
