Find Your Way: Information, Advice and Support

Important Notice – Our services are changing. We are sad to announce that our contract to deliver information, advice and guidance services will finish on March 31st 2021. This programme will stop delivering from this date. The new provider for support services for young people will be Action for Children & you will be able to get their contact details via Cornwall Early Help Hub. We would like to thank all of our partners, stakeholders & young people for their overwhelming support over the last 6 years & the incredible impact, that together, we have made on the lives of young people – rest assured we are still delivering vital services and our commitment to young people is greater now than ever. The rest of our other services carry on as usual. We will work alongside young people & our partners to ensure that young people do not fall through any gap in provision as this transition occurs. If you are unsure as to what service a young person may need, please call us on 01872 222447 or email referral@ypc.org.uk

  • Find Your Way: Information, Advice and Support

What?

Find Your Way is a free, confidential and skilled support network for young people aged 11-19. Whether it’s facing up to bullies, dealing with pregnancy or discovering new learning opportunities, our experienced and qualified team is here to listen, advise and guide.

How?

By recognising the potential in every young person, we help them reach higher. Face to face or over the phone, our experienced and highly qualified youth workers offer help when it’s needed. Whether that means general support, or simply building the skills to become more independent.

We know that young people often feel they’re being told what to do, say or think. That’s why we always lay out the options available, empowering young people to carve their own paths. Establishing this trust is really important to us. So we advocate full confidentiality, for everyone, including under 16s. We won’t talk to anyone else about a young person’s problem, unless of course they ask us to, or we feel they’re at risk of serious harm.

Why?

Each and every young person has the right to flexible, accessible information, advice and guidance. That’s a belief that runs deep here. Supporting a young person through their challenges, especially when they feel they have nowhere else to turn, can make a world of difference. Whether it’s listening over the phone, or facing the problems head-on somewhere private – we make sure they never feel alone.
