Coventry Positive Choices Young Person's Service is a free and confidential young person's integrated risk taking behaviour service for young people from the age of 5, their families, carers and affected others.
We support young people who might be experiencing difficulties and/or facing risks around sexual health, substance misuse and unhealty partner relationships and those affected by a significant others substance use . By intervening early and delivering supportive interventions we intend to help young people identify their strengths and build their resilience in the hope that they realise their full potential.
We have a really friendly team of experienced and trained resilience workers, who will work with the young person to achieve their goals around being safer, healthier and happier through motivational work, education and practical support. They will often see the young person in school/college, at the Positive Choices offices or in a convenient community venue such as a family hub. They will also liaise with other professionals or involved agencies to ensure joined up working for the young person's best interests.
