GYRO - YPAS (Young Person's Advisory Service)

Established in 1966; YPAS is a charity that supports children, young people and families to address their mental health and emotional well-being difficulties. The delivery of our citywide services includes primary schools, secondary schools and 3 community hubs.


YPAS offers a wide range of support, wellbeing and therapeutic services for children, young people and families in Merseyside.


Our mission is to improve the mental health and emotional wellbeing needs of children, young people and families in a non-stigmatized environment, that allows us to:

  • Deliver a wide range of support and therapeutic interventions
  • Reach children, young people and families, as early as possible
  • Consistently monitor progress and change
  • Work jointly with professionals across health, education and social care
  • Include children, young people and families in the design and delivery of services

GYRO is an award-winning LGBTQ+ group for young people aged 12 to 25 who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Questioning their sexuality or gender identity. 1 to 1 appointments are available with a worker with an LGBTQ+ specialism for confidential support if you feel groups aren’t right for you.


We know stepping through the door can be the scariest bit, but once you do that you will be greeted by a member of staff who will take you to do some paperwork and tell you about what we do. You can ask us any questions. We like to think we are friendly and experienced, there is nothing to worry about. If you think about it, every young person there has been in your shoes at some point. Sometimes we talk about serious issues like LGBTQ+ rights and issues and other times we have food, games and socialise.

YPAS GYRO services and support are aimed at anyone aged 12 to 25 years who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, other sexualities and gender identities, or are questioning their sexuality or gender identity. There is no cost to accessing our services.
