We have recently set up a 'Safe-Hub' facility at 1 Market Square, adjacent to the Square Youth Cafe, to accommodate young people who are under the influence of alcohol or other substances.
The need for better support and education for the town's young people whilst under the influence has been evident and through the new facility, we can now offer a safe environment for young people to go and contact home or emergency services if required.
The Safe-Hub facility is available for young people on Friday evenings and incorporates our Sexual Health advisory service (see below).
Are you a young person in Hailsham and need information on STIs, advice on contraception or a chat about relationships?
We offer support for young people in a safe and encouraging environment and any young person that feels they need advice or information on matters relating to sexual health and relationships are welcome to come along to our Safehub facility in Market Square (next to the Square Youth Cafe). No appointment is necessary.
We provide confidential information and advice on sexual health related issues. We also offer C-Cards and free condoms, free pregnancy testing for under 25s, and free chlamydia testing on a confidential basis.
Minibus Hire for Youth Groups
Hailsham Youth Service has benefited from the securing of funding from the Safer Wealden Partnership for the purchase of a minibus, available for local youth groups to hire.
During the pandemic, staff can be seen driving the branded minibus whilst providing its detached (outreach) youth work provision to support the wellbeing of young people in Hailsham and the surrounding areas.
For further information or to make arrangements to hire the minibus, please call 01323 841702 or send an email.
