Sometimes adults just don’t get what it’s like to be a young person today. So when it comes to dealing with some problems another young person near your age could be the right person to talk to. But not everyone has a friend to help them. That is why we created our peer mentoring services.
Youth Link is the name for our young people’s peer mentoring service delivered in Newcastle and Northumberland. Youth Link helps to improve communication and relationships between you (as long as you are aged 11 to 18 years old) and your family, help you make friends, strengthen your confidence and self-esteem.
We match you with a trained volunteer (who is usually just a few years older). They will help you to look at your difficulties and help you to come up with solutions to your problems. We have helped hundreds of young people through Youth Link on issues such as bullying, loneliness, family and school problems.
This is a free service, to find out more use our contact us form, or ring our Youth Link teams in Newcastle on 0191 273 3997.
