Outreach and detached services for children and young adults in Northamptonshire

Youth work in the community

We’d love you to visit us in the centre of Northampton, and to refer children and young adults to us if you think they might need our help. But if you have a school, group or organisation which is already working with young people aged between 12 and 25, we’d love to support you and we can come to you to do this.

If you think it would be helpful for the lowdown to visit your child, you can ask your school, group or organisation to invite us.
