How We Work

Fundamental to all aspects of our work is the vision of mental well-being for the young people of Hackney, as they emerge in to adulthood.

Mental well-being is beyond a policy statement and is embedded in all aspects of our work. All our counsellors and therapists are registered practitioners in their respective fields and deliver services in a multi-disciplinary context, which is facilitated by inter-agency working across voluntary and statutory sectors. Our advice & information worker delivers service to young people seeking assistance with a range of difficulties such as homelessness, benefits, training, education, etc. The role is integral to the counselling and therapy aspects of our service as young people are able to engage with psychotherapeutic and psychosocial support at one access point as their needs unfold. With reflective practice at the core of our delivery all staff engage in regular clinical / case management supervision and professional development training.

Working with other organisations:

Off Centre is well-established in Hackney and works closely with other organisations, including other third sector organisations and the NHS and local authority. We liaise with colleagues in other organisations when a young person needs support from more than one organisation, or 'behind-the-scenes' to think about and plan how services might work together better and improve what they achieve for young people.
