What is a YiS Early Support Hub?
YiS Early Support Hubs provide a drop-in service for young people aged 11-18 who would like a safe space to access support for their mental health and wellbeing without needing a referral or an appointment. Young people will gain access to light touch, early intervention information, signposting, guidance, and activities to support their mental health and emotional wellbeing needs before they hit a crisis point. Hubs enable young people to meet like-minded peers in their community.
Our wealth of materials and resources enable the subjects and sessions to be flexible and reactive to the needs of young people. Hubs offer young people the opportunity to learn more about their mental health and gain skills and techniques to improve their overall wellbeing. We offer activities exploring self-esteem, anxious feelings, relationships, and essential sexual health support. The Hubs provide information and signposting to internal and external services to YiS through our newly developed database with a range of vetted services in Milton Keynes.
Hubs are relaxed, and there is no pressure on attendees to participate in the planned activities. Whilst predominantly group-based, any young person can access confidential one-to-one support. Our trained staff can respond to emerging issues whilst our Designated Safeguarding Lead will be on duty to provide support with any safeguarding issues.
With thanks to funding from Walton Community Council, YiS has been able to bring Early Support Hubs to your local community.
