Parents and Caregivers

Although No5 is a service for young people, we understand that sometimes it is helpful for other people involved with them to get support too.

Young people

No5 is Reading’s service for young people dedicated to providing free confidential counselling and emotional support to anyone between the ages of 11 and 25.


We are constantly developing new training and professional development programs to meet the needs of counsellors wishing to work with young people.
