Partnership led by Catch22 delivering new service for young people in Camden - Catch22 23 March 2015 Camden Council and the Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have announced a new service that aims to fill the gaps in support that is currently available for young people aged 16 to 24 as part of the innovative, jointly-commissioned Minding the Gap project. The delivery contract has been awarded to a partnership of local specialist organisations, who are experts in providing services to young people. The partnership is led by Catch22 and includes The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, The Brandon Centre, The Anna Freud Centre, The Winch and The Integrate Movement. The longstanding, local experience of these partners is not just crucial to understanding the needs of local young people but also to understanding how to tap into existing networks of support in the area. A group of 16 to 24-year-olds from Camden are taking a lead role in designing and implementing the new service.

SupportLine - Confidential Emotional Support for Children, Young Adults and Adults : Telephone helpline, email and post Home - KNOW this isn't love Know this isn’t love Know this isn’t love is our award-winning 2014 campaign to raise awareness of and help lower instances of abuse in relationships amongst young people in the borough. Recent research revealed that many 14 to 25 year olds think controlling behaviour in relationships is normal and do not always know what to do when they experience controlling and abusive relationships or how to support friends or family. We want to change this. If it’s happening to you, it’s important to remember that it’s not your fault. Domestic abuse doesn’t have to be physical. You can help other young people to recognise the signs of domestic abuse (also known as relationship abuse) by sharing our video.
