Support Services


Here at HideOut, we are committed to giving young people someone trusted to talk to.

Below are a list of organisations to help support with anything you may be going through.

Please speak to member of staff if anything is bothering you or you would like more information/support contacting any of these services.

We understand that reaching out can be hard sometimes and some people feel more comfortable writing their feelings down. If this is the case, please reach out over message on our socials.

Resources are also available around the Youth Zone.
