  • To support you to be happy.
  • To provide you with one to one support that is tailored to your needs and interests.
  • To help you to set achievable goals.

A personal plan will be created in consultation with you and your family, accessing community provisions, activities and support to address social, emotional and mental health concerns. You will be informed of what positive activities are on offer such as Youth Alive, the youth offer on the Main Page, and any other providers and uniformed services in Enfield.
