The Youth Enquiry Service known as the YES Project is a project of Jersey Youth Service, we provide young people with free confidential, information, advice and counselling. The project is supported by our Charity 'The Jersey Youth Trust'.
We first opened our doors in September 2008 in La Motte Street, when it was recognised there was a need for a drop-in service that could support young people by providing up-to-date information, advice and counselling.
Since opening our doors in 2008 we have been grateful to be supported by our charity 'The Jersey Youth Trust'. This charity provides essential funding to enable us to run our drop-in and the services we provide for young people.
We are a member of The Association of Jersey Charities and grateful for the funding that we have received in supporting the running of our project. In 2015 the Jersey Youth Service moved premises and relocated at St. James Centre where YES had access to new facilities. It was a great opportunity but it was recognised how there was a need to make the project more accessible and visible to the community and in early 2017 an opportunity of a building on the high street came available.
The YES project finally moved to its new premises at Eagle House, La Colomberie in December 2017 which has given us a prominent position within the town. This move has already seen the benefits with numbers of young people walking through the doors increasing as well as members of the community accessing information of the services.

AND MUCH MORE.
We provide a free counselling service to young people aged 14 to 25 years old.
Our counselling service at YES is run from our drop in at ‘The Link’, Eagle House.
Appointments take place during the drop-in hours. Early evening appointments can also be arranged if required.
Currently there are five counsellors working at YES who have a wide range of experience and knowledge around various matters – we try our best to find you a counsellor who meets your needs.

The YES drop-in takes place at ‘The Link’ which is located at Eagle House. ‘The Link’ is our drop-in base for the Youth Enquiry Service. We call our drop-in ‘The Link’ due to the fact we are a service that works and has the knowledge of multi agencies and organisations that can support young people in Jersey.
Our aim is to meet the needs of young people and provide them with the information and advice they need.
If we do not have the answers they are looking for we can refer or advise young people of other agencies in Jersey who would be able to provide support.
