Apply for check in support

Many of us are having to deal with additional emotional challenges at present, with all that has come with The Coronavirus pandemic. Do you want to talk to someone who will listen to you and maybe help to sign Post you to further support if you need it? If you are a young person with sensory needs, or a family member, for those who may not want counselling, we can offer you confidential check in support. This check in support will be one or two brief 20 minute telephone check ins, focusing on listening to you and helping to sign Post you to other support if you need it.

We can accept referrals from any young person in Sussex between the ages of 8-25 who has a sensory need. This check in support is also open to family members too.

We define a sensory need as:

  • Experience of trauma which is impacting your mental health
  • Having emotional needs that impact how you interact with the world around you and others.
  • Having any kind of physical sensory need such as visual/ hearing impairment
  • Having any kind of neurological condition such as being on the Autistic Spectrum.
