Accessible outside school hours, and available at a number of locations, our Bridgend-based Out of Hours Service aims to help young people to reduce or stop substance misuse, to increase their understanding of the dangers and risks that surround it, and to offer support and advice on a range of other issues that may be affecting their lives. Our hope is that through doing this, we can help young people see positive benefits across their home, school and social life.

The Service also promotes family engagement, and effective relationships, as part of the support that young people need to tackle substance misuse.

We aim to take this Service to a variety of places to provide young people with one-to-one support, advice and information on substance misuse, sexual health, education, social and family issues, with further counselling offered where needed. This counselling is provided on-site, and also at our Bridgend office.

The Service also offers a flexible referral systems through Youth Workers at the venues, working with other agencies, and self referrals. Where a need is identified for further services and support is identified, we’ll give advice on how to take the next step.

Referrals can be made on the young persons behalf by the youth workers. Or the young person can speak directly to the OOH worker who will refer to the appropriate service e.g. the counselling service.
