The Den is a friendly health and wellbeing project which offers advice, information and support on health and lifestyle issues.

We are a Free and Confidential project for young people, male and female between 12 - 25 years who live in Cambuslang and Rutherglen. The aim of The Den is to allow young people to access appropriate services and projects to encourage them to make informed choices about their health and lifestyle. We want to make sure that young people find it easy to get the service they need and to find out what else we and other agencies can offer them. Our objectives are: Empower young people to make informed choices about their health and lifestyle! Increase knowledge, skills, self confidence and self esteem of young people! Increase young people’s access to more appropriate health services!

Everything discussed in The Den is confidential. Contents of consultations with the nurse, informal chats with health or youth workers, chats with other young people or during group work remain within The Den. The nurse or any of the other workers cannot contact your parents or GP and tell them why you came to see them unless you agree it's ok to do so. If you tell any of the staff anything, they won't tell the rest of the staff what you have told them. One of our ground rules is things you tell other people or what they tell you whilst in The Den remain in The Den, and are not discussed elsewhere. All contents of discussions during group work remain within the group to develop trust and enable people to feel confident to discuss sensitive issues within the group. The only time we may have to discuss what you tell us with other people is when you tell us of a situation where you or somebody else has been or may be harmed.
