What we do

Switched On is a young person's substance education service for Cardiff and the Vale. It is an innovative, flagship multi-agency service which is made up of existing services which have been brought together to provide a holistic provision for young people and those who support young people.

Switched On is a Tier 1 education and advice service. They work closely with colleagues in Tier 2, 3 and adult services and facilitate referrals to specialist services where necessary. They offer tailored, bespoke training sessions to a range of practitioners such as teachers, nurses, youth workers, foster carers and many more. Direct education is provided to small groups of young people in a variety of settings from schools to youth centres.
