The Centre Place is a charity based within Bassetlaw. We offer advice, guidance and support to 11-25-year-old children and young people in the area, through the delivery of two core services: Talkzone Mental Health Service and LGBT+ Service Nottinghamshire

Our vision: For children, young people, and their families in Nottinghamshire who experience inequalities to have access to preventive support services enabling them to achieve the best possible futures.

Our Mission: To reduce and relieve suffering and distress, and to improve the emotional well-being, of children and young people and their families throughout Nottinghamshire, with the object of improving the conditions of life.


The children and young people we support live within the Bassetlaw or Nottinghamshire area depending on which service they access. The centre provides young people with a safe, non-judgemental space where they can access specialist support from professionally trained and qualified staff. We provide group and one-to-one support, advice and guidance to young people. To achieve this we offer three key services:

Talkzone Mental Health Service - Talkzone offers free, confidential mental health support and counselling for children and young people, aged 11-25, in Bassetlaw. These services provide a safe space to talk and offer support for children and young people focusing on anger, low moods, confusion, anxiety, loneliness, self-harm, bullying, relationship/family breakdowns, low self-esteem, or issues around sexual orientation or gender identity.

LGBT+ Service Nottinghamshire - Over the last ten years, we have become a focal point for LGBT+ young people, providing professional specialist support and services. The need for this has increased year on year, and the organisation has been in high demand to provide support for young people and their families, outside of our previous age range of 16- 25. We offer a range of professional, specialist services for young people aged 11-25 who identify as LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and any other sexual orientation), or may be questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Social Prescribing Link Worker - In collaboration with Retford and Villages Primary Care Network (PCN) we have developed the role of a Young Person’s Social Prescribing Link Worker. This role is managed by The Centre Place whilst being based and embedded within the PCN. The role of the Social Prescribing Link Worker is to employ non-medical holistic practice methods, providing personalised one-to-one support to young people aged 11-19, to enable them to take control of their well-being, live independently and improve their health outcomes, focusing on the wider determinates of health.
