  • Facing problems with finance, housing, employment;
  • Is concerned about their mental health;

How can I access support?

Speak to your GP, health professional or a member of staff within your surgery for a referral. They’ll arrange an appointment with the Penderi Young People’s Wellbeing Coordinator who will listen, and explore what your needs might be and provide information on what’s available in the community to help you. They will also talk to you about any potential problems or barriers you may have in accessing these options, and help you where appropriate.

You can expect to see the Penderi Young People’s Wellbeing Coordinator a maximum of 6 times.
