Streetwise

About

There are some things you just can’t talk to your friends about. At Streetwise we offer free confidential information, advice and counselling to young people aged 13-25 years. If you need help, advice or just someone to listen to you, you need Streetwise!

You can talk to us about any issue that may be bothering you, the service is free, friendly and confidential.

No appointment is needed just check out our drop-in opening times.

Your Right to Confidentiality

You have the right not to have any information about you passed on to anyone outside the project (like your parents, teachers, social workers etc), without your knowing about it and agreeing to it.

The only time this may be different, is if you tell us that you or someone else is in a dangerous situation and our telling someone else might prevent you or them from being harmed.   If a worker felt that they had to pass on information without your permission, they would still inform you of what they were going to do.
