Need to talk - young people click here

We’re here if you need somebody to talk to.

It can be about anything:

  • Mental health
  • Identity
  • Sexual health
  • Condom distribution
  • Family & Friends
  • Advice
  • Just to get something off your chest…

Whatever it is, we’re here for you. 

You can call us on 0161 203 5333 or come speak to any of our staff – we’re easy to find in our bright blue shirts! 

Your message will be sent to James, who is our Safeguarding Officer.

Anything you write here will be completely confidential, which means that only you and James will ever know about it unless you or others are at risk of harm.
