Since 1982, we have provided free help and advice to the young people of High Wycombe.
Youth Enquiry Service (YES) is a charity based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, that offers free and confidential support and counselling to 13-25 year olds. YES is staffed four days a week and four evenings a week. We support thousands of young people every year.
Our mission is to provide support which is consistently delivered as non-judgemental, supportive, inclusive and empowering.
We work with young people experiencing a wide variety of social welfare issues; these include housing, debt, sexual health, education and employment. These can lead to a range of adverse consequences for young people, most commonly, stress; anxiety, depression, ill health, relationship breakdowns, lost income and lost confidence.
YES also runs a busy sexual health service. We offer a chance to talk about relationships, peer pressure and healthy, positive relationships. We can provide free condoms through the C-card scheme, pregnancy and chlamydia testing.
