About Axis @ The Hive
Based at The Hive in Camden, Axis supports young people with education, employment, housing, sexual health, substance misuse and health and wellbeing.
Axis @ the Hive is a joint project funded by Camden Council and Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to help bridge the gap between child and adult health and wellbeing services, particularly for young people who are currently not engaging with any services.
Managed by Catch22 in partnership with local specialist organisations, Axis operates from a youth base called The Hive, which has been co-designed by young people.
Axis employs a team of young people who are trained to help other young people in many areas of their lives and who can relate to the challenges that young people face on their journey to adulthood.
Young people can access help and support with education, employment, housing, sexual health, substance misuse, personal development and health and wellbeing. Axis is a young person centred service, with young people choosing where and when to meet.
The Hive has been co-designed by young people to be a safe and welcoming place to relax, meet new people, take part in events and activities and get information about local services. It includes spaces for e-learning and personal study and will include a social enterprise where young people can obtain experience to help build their CVs.
The Axis Young People’s Board, composed of young people from Camden, were involved in the design of the service and building, and continue to be involved in the delivery. Contact Kirsty Magahy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the board.
Young people can self-refer to Axis by contacting the service directly. Services are welcome to get in touch to discuss partnership working with young people.
The Hive is available to all young people in Camden to use.
