Faces in Focus

Information, Advice and Guidance

We wish to provide an Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) service that integrates seemlessly with the volunteering and counselling services we currently offer. Young people seeking IAG rarely present with a single need. Our integrated service would ensure we can meet ALL their needs.

  • I went from Level 10 anger to Level 1 anger in six months. Before, I caused thousands of pounds' worth of damage; now, I'm totally calm.

Situation

Young people in our local Boroughs face multiple difficulties, including a lack of affordable housing, unemployment in a time of uncertainty, and a lack of knowledge around matters of health, especially sexual health. Teenage pregnancy, unemployment, drug use, and knife crime are all very real problems in our neighbourhood. Much of this is due to a lack of information, or a lack of approachable sources of aid.

Solution

We will provide the information our young people need, along with advice and guidance that will help them solve their own problems, rather than relying on us. Our aim is to EMPOWER our young people to make the best decisions about their lives and to overcome any difficulties they encounter. Housing our service alongside a free counselling service and volunteer placement scheme means we can be sure our young people get all the help they need as they head into adulthood.
