Drop In Services for young people in South Ribble. This service is for young people aged 16 to 25 who are thinking about leaving or have left home for whatever reason, we can help. Many young people come to us in a crisis when they have nowhere to stay and that is fine but people often don’t realise that it is good to seek help earlier so we can explain what a young person’s options may be.  The Drop In Service is wide ranging and we offer practical and emotional support for young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Young people would normally drop in without an appointment but at the moment (due to Covid 19) if we receive a referral or enquiry, where possible we would contact them on the phone. We are still seeing young people at our centre in Leyland (using goverment guidlines) where this is not possible.
