Other help

Life can be difficult and complex, but that doesn’t make it impossible.

 

Difficulties are what help us grow. Mentoring can help with many things, but is not a magic wand for everything young people face. Sometimes we can’t help, or others can help more in which case we will point you in their direction. Here are some organisations we know and trust who can help you or someone you know who needs help.

 

Remember: Help is always at hand.

On the phone. On the web. Or in person.
