About Us

Youth to Youth is a confidential service that is run by young people for young people with the support of a fully qualified counsellor and youth workers. You can contact us to talk about anything that is worrying you, however big or small.

We think that the best people to understand how you are feeling are other young people. Our team of young volunteers will ‘listen’ to what you need support with and reply as soon as they can. We won’t be telling you what to do and we will keep things confidential. However there are occasions where we may need to pass on your information: click here for more information

Please remember Youth to Youth is not a crises or emergency service if you feel that you need urgent help or are at a serious risk to yourself or other then please click here.
