    Camden Summer University

    22 July to 28 August 2015 – bookings now open

    Camden Summer University offers young people aged 13 to 19 about 100 fantastic free courses hosted by some of London’s biggest names. Bookings are now open.

    New youth base is named The Hive

    A new youth base for Camden will be called The Hive, following a competition for local young people to choose the name.
    The Hive is due to open in Swiss Cottage in August. It will be a safe and welcoming place for Camden young people aged 16 to 24 who may be caught in the gap between children’s and adults’ services. Axis, a new borough-wide health and wellbeing service, will be based at The Hive and will employ a team of young adults trained to help other young people in many areas of their life - including  education, employment, housing, social care, health and wellbeing.
    The Hive will also be a place for young people to relax, study, meet new people and to get information about local services. There will be spaces for e-learning and personal study, as well as a social enterprise where young people can get experience to help build their CVs.
    The Hive and Axis will be managed by Catch22, in partnership with local specialist organisations, while the new base and service has been jointly commissioned by Camden Council and the NHS Camden Clinical Commissioning Group. A Young People’s Board has been involved in the design and delivery at every stage.

    Under 25s advice service

    Advice and information for all young people living in Camden

    This is where, if you are 16 to 24, you can ask about or discuss anything with someone who will listen and help. Young people come to us with questions about welfare benefits and housing, education, money advice or personal problems.

      Nothing is too big or too small and our service is free and confidential.
