ACIS Youth offers counselling free of charge. The service can be accessed directly by young people. Alternatively, confidential requests for counselling can be facilitated by others such as parents, social workers, youth services, teachers, GPs or any other agency, providing the young person has given their consent for others to do this on their behalf. ACIS Youth Counselling Service is confidential. This means that no information is passed on to anyone else without the person's prior knowledge and agreement. The only exception to this would be if Child Protection Proceedings needed to be initiated and this would be done in accordance with the published NHS and Aberdeen City Council guidelines. This means we will keep what is said private unless someone is in real danger. The Service promotes the rights of young people as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989.
We currently have no vacancies.
