Youth Enquiry Service Plymouth
About Youth Enquiry Service Plymouth
Our drop in service, available 6 days a week, supported by a dedicated team of volunteers, offers young people emotional support and information around housing, sexual health and mental health and the options available to them. We can also offer information about, and make referrals to, specialist services, both within The Zone and elsewhere.
Our specialist services include our two mental health teams; Icebreak, an early intervention service for young people who are experiencing severe emotional distress and Insight, an early intervention service for young people who are experiencing early psychosis.
Our housing support team, ZAP (Zone Accommodation Project), provides support to young people who homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless by offering mediation, early intervention and floating support.
Our Wis£r Wonga project, funded by the Big Lottery, is helping to improve financial confidence in young tenants and residents who are aged 16-24 years.
Our Victim Care project provides practical support and counselling to young people who have been the victim of crime.
We also offer group work, often based at Lopwell Barn our recently converted residential activity centre, which aims to build the confidence and skills of young people by using outdoor activities such as bush craft and coracle building.
