The new service will offer free help and advice for anyone between 14-17yrs. The Young Person’s Sanctuary will open its doors at the Young Persons Hub, ResoLUTiONs in Castle Street, Luton on Monday, 20th March, and run from 4.00 pm -10.00 pm, (Mon – Sunday), 365 days of the year.
The Wednesday night Sanctuary will be held at Luton Wellbeing Centre, Dumfries Street, Luton, also from 4pm to 10pm
The Young Person’s Sanctuaries are safe, non-judgmental spaces that students can come to if they find themselves in crisis or mental distress in the evenings. There is no need to call and book an appointment, simply drop in and they will be met by a trained mental health worker who will listen and help you identify ways to address the problems you are facing. The teams will also be able to refer and signpost to other services if required.
The Young Person’s Sanctuaries were identified as the preferred support option during a round of public focus groups held to shape a new 24-hour extended mental health crisis care for young adults across Bedfordshire and Luton.
