N-Gage – Gwent Young People

An innovative new service N-Gage, from Barod

Your young person’s drug and alcohol services in Gwent changed in April 2017. We’re letting you know, so that you can talk to us, ask us questions, tell us what you think and help us get it right.


So far, we have spoken to you if you were being supported by a young  person’s drug or alcohol service in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly,  Monmouthshire, Newport or Torfaen as we wanted:

  • your help to name the project,
  • to make sure what we set up in Gwent has you in the driving seat at every stage of its development; and
  • your agreement for any information about you to be transferred to the new wider Gwent young person’s service.

Please contact us directly or speak to your support worker to arrange a face to face appointment with us or an informal chat over the telephone (we are available week days,  evenings and  some weekends and will come to where you access services).

You can do this in a number of ways:

If you want more information before speaking to us, why not have a look at our Gwent young person’s leaflet below which may answer some of your initial questions.  Either way, we are really looking forward to hearing from you to explain what we have planned for young people in Gwent and to ask you to help us set this project up from the start.
