Any agency or organisation working with young people can refer to The Amber Project (alternatively, young people can self-refer).
If you would like to refer a young person, or if you are wondering if a referral would be appropriate; please contact us at the office or download a referral form.
We regret that due to the number of referrals that we are currently experiencing, we are responding to referrers more slowly than usual.
Is Anybody Listening
A drama-based guide for professionals working with young people who self-harm.
This project is for young people (aged 12-25) who identify as trans, non-binary or are questioning their gender identity, and need support with their emotional well being..
We are currently running two series of creative workshops for young people aged 12-16 and 17-25; these have a friendly, caring and supportive atmosphere, with the option to speak to a counsellor during the session.
The workshops are held on a Thursday evening; the early workshop for young people aged 12-16 meets between 4:30-6:00pm with the older group (17-25) meeting between 7:30-9:00 (ish), via Zoom. Groups are by invitation only.
Please download a referral form or email:

These elements of the project are funded by The Moondance Foundation
Amber Awareness Talks
We offer short, informal workshops which raise awareness of our work.
We are very excited by our poetry book, which has been written by the young people at The Amber Project and reflects their thoughts, feelings and experiences (see Publications
for more details).
