What are hubs?
Hubs provide easy to access mental health support to young people who need it.
Their main purpose is mental health support. But hubs can also provide a base to help young people with other problems they’re experiencing. All under one roof. This could include:
- Employment support
- Housing advice
- Sexual health services.
In some parts of England similar hubs already exist. They’re helping prevent young people from reaching crisis point. Extra funding would support these existing hubs and create new ones in areas without them.
Our vision is a network of hubs that provide early mental health support across England. Anyone aged 11-25 will be able to drop into a service in their local area without an appointment or referral.
We run the Fund the Hubs campaign in partnership with:
- Youth Access
- The Children’s Society
- The Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition
- Centre for Mental Health
- Black Thrive Global
- British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
