The transition to adulthood is not easy. So in recognition of this the London Borough of Camden has launched a service to help the emotional health and wellbeing of 16 to 24-year-olds, called Axis.
Axis employs a team of young adults who are trained to help other young people with everything from education and employment to housing, mental health and substance misuse.
Axis operates from a youth centre called the Hive where young people can relax, study and meet new people. There is also space 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 are managed by social business Catch22, in partnership with local specialist organisations, and are jointly commissioned by Camden Council and the local CCG.
It was opened last year after close consultation with young people with the aim of providing a more “responsive” and “accessible” service to this age group. Those that have been helped report feeling less lonely, safer and having an improved quality of life.
