Platform Youth Services

 

About the service: 

Platform Youth Services provides support, shelter, safety, warmth, food and understanding to young people aged 12-25. It doesn't matter why you need support. We have young people with us who need a safe place to stay because they can no longer remain at home. We help young people living on their own who are stressed out about how to pay their bills and keep their accommodation.  We can also help if you are still living at home but you're not getting the type of support you need or want.  Whatever your struggle is, you don't have to go it alone. All that matters is that you get assistance.
