The Junction - Young Carers and Youth Services


The Junction is a local charity based in Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland and constituted to work with children, young people and their families up to the age of 25 across the Tees Valley. We exist to make a difference to the lives of children, young people and their families from the local community by empowering them to reach their potential through holistic person centred support .

Our Vision is a world where no child, young person or family is left to struggle. We want a world where there is always someone to talk to.

Our Mission is to empower children, young people and families to embrace life with confidence, facing life's challenges in a positive way.

Our Values:

We listen: We’ll never tell children and young people what we think they need. We let them shape their own support which empowers them towards healthier, happier lives.
We genuinely care: Our team is passionate about changing children and young people’s lives. Our expertise is second to none, showing empathy towards each individual situation.
We don’t judge: We never judge anybody. Children and young people are free to express themselves as they wish.
We empower: We go on adventures, push young people out of their comfort zones and tackle issues head on. We show them their potential and believe they can accomplish anything they want to.

We support some of the most vulnerable children, young people and families in our communities and we are determined to offer a whole organisation approach to meeting their needs, which centres on building resilience and overcoming barriers to unlocking their true potential. Our services are provided in the community, within schools, young people’s homes and from various hubs within our communities.

We have 5 specialist areas that support our clients, they are:

Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Services
Young Carers Services
Youth Work Services
Specialist Children and Young People’s Transport Services
Youth Employment Services
