Talkshop is a specialist advice and information service for young people aged between 13 and 19 years old (up to 25 depending on circumstances). Based at Sale Waterside, our aim is to support your needs through offering a variety of services in a friendly environment. The Talkshop staff team consists of qualified youth workers who offer a non-judgemental, confidential service to young people across the borough.
The Talkshop operates a drop in service Monday to Thursday afternoons where you can pop in to speak to a youth worker. Some of the issues our youth workers can offer support with include healthy relationships, family breakdowns, bullying, sexual health, sexuality, anger, self harm, depression, homelessness, drugs and alcohol mis-use.
Where Talkshop can also signpost you on to other agencies and local services. We work in partnership with a number of agencies, including Connexions, HOST (Housing Options Service Trafford), Trafford College, Surestart, YOS, CAMHS, 42nd Street, Phoenix Futures, Fairbridge and The Princes Trust.
The Talkshop offer a confidential service. This enables us to offer a safe and non-judgemental environment for young people to seek the help they need.
