If you need a lawyer for advice or to go with you to court


If you need to talk to someone or get info or help about:

  • issues at home or with family
  • issues at school including suspension and exclusion
  • being homeless or about to be homeless
  • having money/income issues
  • being the victim of a crime or abuse
  • being discriminated against because of your age

CONTACT US to speak to a worker at YAC.

It is best if you don’t just drop into the office without an appointment because YAC workers are often out at court or visiting other young people and so may not be here when you come –but if you need to, we will do our best to help you.
