Talk to Frank - Honest information about drugs

Canvey Island Youth Project

About this service

Canvey Island Youth Project is a small local charity based on Canvey Island, Essex. We help young people between 11 and 25. They may be homeless or have no money for food or clothing. They may need someone to talk to or need information on issues such as benefits, drugs or alcohol. We are here to help.

We help young people by:

  • Listening to problems or concerns in a non-judgemental way
  • Offering information on which to base their decisions
  • Filling in forms or helping to understand questions
  • Advocacy and support
  • Counselling or befriending on a one-to-one basis
  • Information on issues like drugs, education, health, benefits
