The Integrated Youth Service is continuing to help support young people in Ealing during these challenging times.
We are actively monitoring the situation and working to minimise disruption as much as possible. Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our service users and colleagues. Therefore almost all face to face appointments & meetings have been cancelled until further notice.
We will still offer support virtually via phone or email to young people in need.
If you are aged 13-19 (*24 with SEND) and worried about your current situation then please contact us for help and support.
Young People Are Getting Their Vaccine In Ealing
The majority of young people (18 – 29 year-olds) in Ealing have had their vaccine.
Young people are continuing to get their vaccine by walking up to local pharmacies or CP House, so that they can protect themselves against COVID-19.
The best way of staying safe against COVID-19 is to get vaccinated and to continue to get tested regularly, so you know if you are carrying the virus or not.
Councillor Josh Blacker, cabinet member for healthy lives said: “It is now easier than ever to get a vaccine, you can walk-up to a number of local pharmacies and get your jab. No ID? No NHS number. No problem.
“Everyone should be getting their jab as it is the best way of protecting yourself and others from COVID-19, but my main message today is for young people. We’re now at the point where the majority of 18 – 29 year-olds have had their vaccine, so why not join them?
“If you have already had yours, please encourage others to do the same. Let’s Keep Ealing safe.”
Get Tested Regularly
Residents can order free rapid test kits online or pick up at a number of local pharmacies without the need for an appointment.

Top Tips Returning To School During COVID-19
Communication material for children
To support children to navigate the changes to youth justice that have been implemented during the coronavirus outbreak we have worked with partners, children and young adults to create the following guides:
Please do share these guides with children and partners through your own networks.
Thank you to the many children and young adults who were consulted on the guides. Thanks also to partners such as AYM, YOT Managers Cymru, the National Police Chiefs’ Council, the Independent Office for Police Conduct and HMCTS for their support.
If you attend one of the schools in the borough and need some information, advice or guidance then you can contact your Careers Advisor directly by visiting Schools & Colleges where you can find direct phone numbers and email addresses of your school PA.
