N-GAGE provides information on a wide range of issues relevant to young people. Most importantly it focuses on improving access to the range of support services available to them in their local area and further afield.
Young people can access information, advice, support and signposting to a range of areas, such as mental health and wellbeing; sexual health; suicide prevention; relationship issues; resilience and coping with school and employment.
‘N-GAGE has helped me find out that I wanted to do youth work and helped me progress with my youth carer and get me on to the courses that I wanted to do. Also they are great helping young people deal with problems and hard times in people's lives.’ – service user.
The service puts young people at the heart and aims to ensure that there is ‘joined up’ working across a range of health and social wellbeing themes. The team also delivers some outreach activity across the northern part of the Northern Trust area.
