The Canvey Island Youth Project was first established by a small group of volunteers in 1992. We are a local, community organisation which works with young people between the ages of 11 and 25.

We help young people by…
• Listening to problems or concerns in a non-judgemental way.
• Offering information on which to base their decisions.
• Filling in forms or helping to understand questions.
• Offering advocacy and support to talk to other agents, parents or carers.
• Offering counselling or befriending on a one-to-one basis.
• Offering information on issues like drugs, education, health, benefits…

We are open Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Counselling and Befriending is by appointment and can be made outside our opening hours.

All our work is free and confidential
