Guide to Camden youth services

We offer a wide-ranging, exciting and engaging programme of activities that builds young people’s skills and confidence.

    The Hive - new youth base opening in October 2015

    A new youth base for Camden, called The Hive, is due to open in October 2015.

    The Hive, in Finchley Road, Swiss Cottage, 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, is 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

    If you are aged 16 to 24, this is where 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 and personal problems.

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