A youth support service has launched in Slough, aiming to help vulnerable young people.

On Friday, February 2, Caudwell Youth officially opened their new support service in Slough.

Caudwell Youth has already expanded to several areas across Buckinghamshire and one in Luton.

They provide 11 to 24-year-olds with personalised support and access to a volunteer mentor to support their journey to a brighter future.

This is done through goal-setting to positive lifestyle choices, work, education, and housing support.

Now in its second year, Caudwell Youth has already impacted the lives of over 157 young people in Buckinghamshire.

With its move to Slough, Caudwell Youth hopes to extend its support to the 30,000 at-risk youth in the town.

Speaking at the launch of Caudwell Youth Slough at Moxy Hotel, Charlie Dixon-Prior, operations director at Caudwell Youth, said: “This is a huge moment in the movement towards our vision.

"We recognise that young people need additional support, through no fault of their own, we want to provide support that enables them to shape their own future.

"We have strong local connections in Slough and the move supports our neighbouring area of Buckinghamshire, which we currently operate in to support up to 50 young people by February 2024.

"However, we won’t stop until we’ve reached every young person in the country who needs us, which we estimate is 100,000, this is just the beginning.”
