Tower Hamlets Public Health has commissioned Compass and Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust who will be working in partnership to provide education, support and advice, to promote health and wellbeing, and offer testing and where appropriate treatment for sexual ill health and substance misuse.

The service is open to young people aged 10-19 years and also to those aged 19-25 years who are known to be at risk of poor health, including Looked-After Children, children who are leaving care and those with a Special Educational Need or Disability.

The service will start on 2 January 2018 and be available at:

East Side Youth Centre - Tuesdays from 5pm-8pm
6 Parnell Road, Bow, E3 2RB

Haileybury Youth Centre - Wednesdays from 5pm-8pm

Description of service 

The service will be built around the needs of young people. It aims to offer a universal, targeted and specialist service that is welcoming, accessible and prevention-focused. Support will be provided to help build young people’s resilience and life skills via partnerships with schools, families and communities. 
 
Having an integrated service means that risky behaviour can be addressed within a single service.

The service will provide:

  • health promotion campaigns, resources and outreach activities

  • early intervention programme to address risky behaviour

  • staff training and capacity building

  • coordination and provision of the C-card for residents under the age of 25 years

  • coordination of You’re Welcome accreditation

  • contraception and sexual health services

  • pregnancy testing and support for under 18s who are pregnant

  • substance misuse specialist treatment services

  • help and support with quitting tobacco.

The locations of two further drop-ins and a central hub will be confirmed shortly.
