You Decide Team
The You Decide Team are there for people when they decide they deserve a better life. Whether its those caught up in a violent lifestyle, people dealing with addiction, social isolation or someone looking to access training and employment the You Decide Team can help them take control.
Working in the north of Glasgow, based in the Firhill area, the team is made up of people with the right skills, training and lived experience to understand, connect and support those looking to create a healthier, safer and happier life.
Project lead Callum Hutchison said: “We all need a bit of support sometimes. Just speaking to someone who understands what you’re going through so you no longer feel alone can be very powerful. The YDT can help you work out what you need and where to find it. We don’t judge but we will listen and help you take back control.”
The team take referrals and self-referrals and will meet an individual at a place and time that suits their needs. The service is completely confidential. The YDT can help support those dealing with a range of issues including:
Alcohol or drug use
Mental health and wellbeing
Access to employment
Support to gain skills for work
The team will work with an individual as long as they feel they need support and there are no age restrictions. If you are working with someone who could benefit from our support, or you would like to get in touch yourself then just give us a call or drop us an email and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
Please note that the service doesn’t work 24/7 but will respond to you as quickly as possible. In an emergency always dial 999.
