CHECK THIS OUT: The video featured above was made by three Media Students from the University of Northampton to raise awareness of the issues facing young people and how support from the lowdown can help.


the lowdown offers free and confidential counselling, sexual health and LGBTQ support services six days a week in Northampton for 12-25 year olds. You can get the help and support you may need, whatever you are struggling with. You can access our services by calling us on 01604 634385, email, or through a referral. You can also ‘check us out’ at fundraising & awareness events and activities.

Have a look around our website, and you’ll see some of the issues people talk to us about and how we’ve helped other children and young adults just like you – worried or confused, in distress, facing a crisis, or looking for answers.

Our service is confidential – so you can feel safe talking to us. The quotes included from other young people are genuine, but we have changed the names and photos to protect their identity.

Your message is confidential and sent direct to the lowdown's support team.
Concerned about safety?
the lowdown provides a confidential service, which allows us to help those most in need without them being afraid to talk to us.
