New Insight Young People’s service in Westminster
We are delighted to announce that we are expanding our young people’s service, Insight in London and from 1st April will be providing the Westminster Young People’s service.
The new service, funded by City of Westminster, will work closely with Blenheim’s young people’s service in Kensington and Chelsea, which Blenheim have provided for 10 years. Insight Westminster will provide the services to young people from school age to 18 years, who may be having issues with drugs or alcohol, their families and carers. The team will deliver individual key work, support to access other services, training to professionals and educational workshops at sites across the borough.
Jo Choi, Assistant Director at Blenheim, said:
“We have many years experience working with young people in London and we are really excited to be extending our work to Westminster, supporting people to make positive changes to their lives.
The Insight team has specialist expertise and invaluable resources that will provide training, education and a safe environment for local young people to get help with drug and alcohol addictions.”
Young people often face a lot of different pressures, so we try to provide a range of services to ensure our recovery options are as varied as possible. Roxy had been working with the team from Insight who got her ready for and into rehab:
“My goals are starting a new life, spending more time on myself, walking more and asking for help when I need it. I feel right at home with everyone and they are really helping me find my feet. I miss Insight and my mum but I know I am in the right place. I feel really great of making the choice of quitting my old life and my main goal is never going back to drugs ever again.”
Insight will accept self-referrals as well as referrals from professionals from 1st April. If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to Sarah Cahn, Insight Manager, on the telephone number or email below.
