www.cool2talk.org is an interactive website where young people from Tayside and the Western Isles can get health related questions answered in 24hrs or less.
It is confidential and anonymous.
Questions are answered by trained workers who will respond and support you and give further information on services in your area. It is not a medical site and it is not a chat room.
A new early intervention service for young people has been launched on the cool2talk website. The 121 on-line chat service gives young people the opportunity to chat online with a counsellor for up to 50 minutes.
The 121 service works on a waiting room basis. This means it is a first come first served system and only allows for 2 young people to have a 50 minute session with a counsellor on a Wednesday between 6-8pm
This new service may be able to help with a wide range of issues, including friendships, bullying, self esteem, abuse, anxiety, stress, depression, eating difficulties, loneliness, relationship problems, bereavement, self-esteem, sexual orientation, sexual abuse, discrimination, and many more.
The Carers Trust have worked with the Scottish Government and with young carer services to develop a Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 Jargon Buster for Young Carers.
The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community.
The Young Carers Team had a very busy Easter Holiday. Arranging different day trips from Crazy Golf to Trampolining with lots and lots of Easter Eggs in between!
