We have a number of places for young people to come and meet friends and hang out, with lots of things going on. You can also drop in and meet with local advisers and get specialist support.
Come and talk to us
We are happy to talk to you about anything you need support and advice on. It could be you need advice on education, employment and training, sexual health advice or where to get condoms. Whatever your needs we are here to help. If the person best suited to help you isn't available, we can make an appointment for you to meet with them - you might need to fill in a referral form.
If you just want a place to 'be', then that is OK too. The type of people you may meet include:
- CXK personal advisors
- drug and alcohol workers
- early help family support workers
- education welfare officers
- mental health and wellbeing support workers
- sexual health advisors
- training providers
- workers from other support services
- youth offending officers
- youth workers.

Online youth services
Some youth services are available online, including opportunities for you to talk to youth workers and friends, as well as lots of new activities for you to try.
As part of our work with young people in and around Kent, we, alongside Tonbridge and Malling Forum, Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council, Angel Lane and Kent and Medway VRU have come together to bring you the Safety Pin campaign. The name was chosen by all young people involved.
If you need emergency support and your local youth hub isn't open, you can talk to others. Whether you need support with your mental health, domestic abuse or homelessness, there is help out there for you:
- Alcohol and drug support
- Benefits and financial support
- Carer support
- Domestic abuse and refuges
- Emergency contraception
- Mental health support
- Report radicalisation or extremism (Prevent)
- Relationships and sex
- Special educational needs and disabilities.
You can also find additional support for the above and other topics such as; bullying, child protection, health, pregnancy and youth clubs on our community directory.
