Oxfordshire Young People’s Service

Our Oxfordshire Young People’s service provides information, advice and prevention campaigns to raise awareness of substance misuse.

Our structured evidenced based psychological and psychosocial interventions and support is designed for children impacted by parents/carers or a family members substance misuse.

We also offer brief advice and interventions for targeted groups of children and young people using or at risk of misusing substances through assertive outreach on a one to one basis or through group work.


We offer structured evidenced based psychological and psychosocial interventions to children and young people up to the age of 19 (25 in some cases) whose use of substances is significantly impacting on their social, psychological and physical functioning.

We also support children and young people who are affected by some else’s substance use.


In the case of structured one to one treatment an support an Aquarius worker will work with children and young people referred through via Oxfordshire Locality Community Support Service or in the instance of a family member or individual wishing to self refer please call the spoc number above  or liaise with your school/college nurse.

The LCSS are the ‘front door’ to all professionals requiring access to children and family services in Oxfordshire.

If a child is already subject to a Team Around the Family, Child In Need, or Child Protection Plan a request for support from the Aquarius service can be made via the lead professional.

Cases that require specialist psychosocial interventions will be then allocated to an Aquarius worker. We also provide outreach brief intervention and advice that do not require a referral. Please complete a screening tool and send to ypoxfordshire@aquarius.org.uk
