What we do

information, advice and support to any young person under 18 years who wants it in Barod

N-Gage, Choices and Sorted are drug and alcohol services for young people by Barod (formerly Drugaid Cymru). We provide information, advice and support to any young person under 18 years who wants it. Young people can talk to us if they:

  • Want to know more about any drug, including alcohol
  • Want to talk about their own use of drugs or alcohol
  • Want to talk to us about someone else’s use of drugs or alcohol

We have support services in Newport, Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly,  Torfaen, Monmouthshire, Merthyr, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Swansea, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

We talk with young people one-to-one; this means one worker, one young person. We do this on the phone, by text and in person. When meeting young people in person, we go to where they are; we can meet them in youth centres, in school, at home, in the community – wherever the young person feels comfortable.

More information about what we do can be found here.
