Early intervention and preventative work is our main aim.

Our Youth Support team can work in collaboration with Dundee based schools or other organisations who may have groups of young people aged 12-25, in need of additional support particularly in the areas of low self esteem, risk taking behaviours, relationships and/ or emotional wellbeing.

Referral Criteria

Young people can be referred to our support team if there are concerns about:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Unhealthy relationships on and offline
  • Self-harm, substance misuse and other risk-taking behaviours
  • Unexpected pregnancy
  • Post termination or miscarriage

Organisations we have worked in partnership include:

  • Home start
  • Dundee Young Carers
  • Shelter
  • The HELM
  • The Attic
  • Menzieshill Community Centre
  • Children 1st

If at any time we feel we are not the right service for a group or young person, we would discuss this with those involved and signpost to other support services.
