The Star Centre
At the Star Centre we work to support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of our young people. We work with children, young people and their families living in Sefton to provide a wide range of support and therapeutic interventions. We support ages 5-18 – typically offering support directly to parent/carers for young people under the age of 12.
• Young Person's Drop-in. Mondays 4-6pm @ the Star Centre.
Anyone aged 5-18 living in Sefton can access our drop-in sessions. You do not need to have worked with us at the Star Centre before or have an open referral. The drop- in offers the chance to talk through any struggles you may have, and access information, advice and guidance in a safe and non-judgemental space. Please note if a Monday falls on a bank holiday the drop-in will not take place. Check our social media platforms for regular updates in case a session cannot take place.
