We continually work to improve this service we provide to the young people of Hounslow:
- Waiting time - A key priority for the coming year is to continue to keep waiting times down for young people to start counselling. This will include further recruitment and training of new counsellors.
- Accessibility - To increase accessibility for young people in the borough we will work alongside the Local Authority, Schools, HMP Feltham Young Offenders Institution, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service and other youth provision to develop the counselling service. In particular vunerable and marginalised young people eg LGBTQIA young people, young offenders, young people in care and BAME young people. We will reach out by providing services in outreach locations; schools and prison and deliver a Drop-in and sessions during the day and in the evening.
- Funding - To maintain and possibly increase funding we will continue to work with current funders and seek to identify new ones.
