Young people who use alcohol and drugs are at the risk of being sexually exploited, poor health, committing crimes and missing school. Also potential drug and alcohol misuse can cause neglect of children, domestic violence, child abuse and poor health outcomes. Tp promote the wellbeing and safety of young people, our team of social workers carries out direct work with young people. They also provide information, advice and support.

Our young people’s team offers counselling services and support for children and young people. We also provide information and support to parents that are struggling with drug and alcohol misuse.

HOJEF also offers ICT training sessions and group activities to young people.
