Suffolk Young People's Health Project (4YP)

General Details

Suffolk Young People's Health Project (commonly known as 4YP) provides a wide range of services that aim to improve the health and wellbeing of young people in Suffolk, aged 12-25.

We aim to equip young people with the skills, resilience and knowledge they need to live healthier, happier, safer lives and reach their full potential.

A modest-sized local charity, 4YP is based in central Ipswich. Support is available on a drop-in basis 10am-5pm Monday to Friday.  Until 8pm most evenings, and some weekends, we offer additional engaging, fun activities and games that build friendships and independence.

4YP's counselling service is extensive, offering more than 150 sessions per week.

We regularly offer support in county schools and run a professional online chat-based support platform ‘Ask the 4YP Expert’ 5-7pm each Wednesday and Thursday.

The Cattle Market bus station is situated just behind our premises. Ipswich train station is only a 5-10 minute walk.
Restrictions to access
Our lift to the first floor is currently out of order, but we can offer full provision of support on the ground floor.
Notes

The drop-in is open 10am-5pm Monday to Friday for young people, aged 12-25, to walk in and speak to a Young People's Worker about any issues they may need support with.

4YP is open until 8pm, running targeted groups (see www.4yp.org.uk/activities) but not the drop-in element of support.
