This blog is one of a number of stories we will be posting about Youth Work Week 2019
In2change is a youth work project based in The Info Shop. They offer a confidential service to young people aged 11-18 years’ old who live in or attend education in Wrexham. They look to support people who are using, have previously used or considering using drugs or alcohol.
The aim is to empower young people to make informed decisions. The service consists of a variety of interventions based around each young person’s needs and wishes.
Work with young people may include harm reduction, relapse prevention, planned reductions, introducing / increasing social activities, diversionary activities, work on anger, sleep, hygiene, confidence & self-esteem. In2change also deliver informal education sessions in schools and Youth groups on topics around drugs and alcohol.
Quote from a young person: “In2change I find have really helped me when I have needed the support. I have never been judged and I always feel thoroughly well looked after and moving forward all the time. I enjoy working with the team because for the first time in a long time I finally feel as though I’m on track”.
