The free sessions are designed to help young people and their families experiencing personal, emotional or behavioural issues. The next three dates are February 2, March 14 and 28.

AAA founder Kevin Jenkins OBE has described the drop-in as "innovative and exciting", with this just one of the many services offered at AAA, who work in partnership with a range of bodies to offer young people with multiple needs bespoke experiences and programmes.
