Our services, available 6 days a week and supported by a dedicated team of volunteers, offer 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 those who are experiencing early psychosis.

Our sexual health service provides support with relationships, sexual health and sexuality. Talk with our trained workers in confidence, as well as get free condoms, STI screening and pregnancy testing. Nurses are also available to prescribe contraception, including the pill and the implant.

Our housing support team, ZAP (Zone Accommodation Project), provides support to young people who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless by offering early intervention and floating support.

Our Victim Care project provides practical support and counselling to young people who have been the victim of crime.
