LAST MODIFIED ON: 11/09/2020 - 13:26

The Public Health Agency funds One Stop Shop Services across Northern Ireland to cater for the health improvement needs of children and young people aged 11-25 years old.  This follows the piloting of a number of models across Northern Ireland.

A One Stop Shop Service provides a youth friendly, holistic health and wellbeing service. These services are hubs where young people have opportunities to socialise in an alcohol and drug-free environment. Young people can also get advice and support on a range of issues from relevant services both on-site and off-site with the support of staff of the One Stop Shop.
