- Access to a well equipped information point providing advice and materials;
- Access to an up-to-date database of agencies offering support and advice;

- School difficulties

Who can use Y2Kplus+?
Y2Kplus+ can provide support to any young person within Midlothian; however priority will be given to young people living in Mayfield & Easthouses.
The young person must be between the ages of 9 and 18.
Enquiries and referrals can be made on behalf of a young person however Y2Kplus+ is completely voluntary, we will only offer support if the young person wants it.
How can I get support from Y2Kplus+?
Young people can refer themselves for support from Y2Kplus+ by speaking to the Y2Kplus+ Team Leader via phone, email or coming along to the Y2K youth project.
Other agencies or professionals who have identified a young person they feel would benefit from the Y2Kplus+ service can get in touch with the Y2Kplus+ Team Leader who will discuss the enquiry.
A meeting will be arranged between the young person and a Y2Kplus+ worker. At this meeting both parties will decide what sort of support is required and how it will continue.
