Our Drop-in & Sort-it service is for young people who would like speak to someone confidentially and in a safe space.

They can be used as an offloading space or can be used to find out about what other services are available for you to get support.


You will be listened to and the worker will try to find the best way to help you either with our services or by helping you to access other services.

  • For a Drop-in session you do not need to contact us and can just attend one of our centres on our Drop-in evenings.

  • For a Sort-it session you will need to contact us to book an appointment.

What will happen?

At a Drop-in or Sort-it session you will have a one-to-one 20 minute appointment with a worker.


The worker will need to take some of your personal details including full name, address, date of birth, what school or college you attend and details about your GP (Doctor).


They will explore with you what issues you would like to get support for and will discuss with you what the most appropriate services might be. They will also provide you with additional information regarding particular issues and can signpost you to online resources for further help and information.

Who should I bring with me?

Anyone above 13 years of age are able to access a Drop-in or Sort-it session without parent or carer permission, however please be aware should we feel that you or another person may be in danger we may need to discuss this with either your parent or carer, or another agency.


We may also ask you to complete a ‘Getting Home Safe’ form so we know you are safe when you leave us.

Who do I contact?

Young people are able to drop-in during opening times, with their parent or carer, to ask about what support is available.

They can also ask their parent or carer to call us on 0161 330 9223 to find out more information.
