With the situation around the coronavirus developing, our priority is with the health of young people, staff, volunteers and the wider community.
As always we want the best for young people. We have been looking at the safest ways for doing this now and in the months to come, also keeping COVID-19 updates from the government in mind. After lots of planning and also talking with young people, we sadly had to make the decision to close the centre temporarily and stop face to face support from Friday 20 March.
The day centre doors might be closed at the moment but our work has not. This page is for updates on how we can support you and how we will work with others to help young people in the days and weeks to come. Things are constantly changing, so please keep checking this page for updates.
You will have noticed that there are daily developments about the coronavirus, so there will also be changes about how we and others will be supporting young people. We will be giving updates via twitter, facebook and our website. This Get Help page is especially for updates for young people about what support is available through New Horizon Youth Centre and other organisations during this time.

We understand you might be worrying about what help is available at the moment but there is support out there. To keep things simple, this is a basic list for now, but we will add to it and hope that the links can be helpful. Information and services might change in the coming weeks, so we will keep this updated as much as possible.
