About this organisation

Centre 33 - Cambridge based charity provides free and accessible information, counselling, services and support to any young person aged 8-25 in Cambridgeshire to enable them to overcome the effects of poor health, isolation, disadvantage and inequality so as to achieve their potential.

Our services include:
1) Information, Outreach and Support Service:
i) The Information (First Contact) Service - Free and confidential information and sexual health services to young people from Cambridge City, South and East Cambridgeshire.
ii) The Housing and Living Skills service- Information and support for young people aged 15 - 25, who may be dealing with the threat of homelessness, sleeping rough, drugs, money problems or lack of support.

2) Mental Health and Counselling Service - Free short term confidential counselling for 13-25 year olds living in Cambridge City, South and East Cambridgeshire. This service enables young people who are experiencing mental health or distress to access a safe place to share their feelings and explore ways of coping with their distress.

3) Young Carer Service- At Centre 33, we support young carers aged 8 to 18 years whose life is affected by a family member who has a physical or learning disability, mental health problems, long term illness, drug or alcohol misuse or AIDS/HIV by delivering respite groups, 1-to-1 support, activities, trips and holidays and regular newsletters.
