Services for Young People

Planning for the future can feel a bit overwhelming, especially when there are so many things to consider. We hope that these pages will answer many of your questions and point you towards a range of useful information. 

If you’re aged 16 -19 there are a wide variety of learning and work options that you can think about. Don’t forget, if you’re under 18 you are required to continue in either full-time or part-time learning at least until your 18th birthday. 

CSW offers a range of services to help guide you through your choices, provide information and offer support, from a quick chat to more intensive, long-lasting support.  

We also have self-help resources and information from other partners on our resources page. 

If you are a Child/Young Person, agency, or parent/carer you can use this form to request support, or you can call us on 0800 97 55 111.
