How our service can help you

It is available to those up to the age of 25 and offers a range of support including therapies, counselling and guided self-help.
Referrals can be made to YOUnited by a GP or any professional working with children or young people.
Referral information can be found here.
All referrals are triaged and assessed by specialist staff from YOUnited who then work with clients, as well as their family or carers if necessary, on the best pathway to support their needs.
The YOUnited referral hub only accepts professional referrals.
YOUnited is a partnership involving: Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, Centre 33, and Ormiston Families.
Young people have been instrumental in helping co-design the service.
What to do if a young person is in crisis
If a young person is in mental health crisis contact CPFT’s First Response Service by calling NHS 111 (option 2)
People in Wisbech have not got the option 2 but can access the service via dialling 111. The call handler will then transfer them direct to the FRS (First Response Service) service.
