CAIS provide substance misuse education, information, help and support to young people aged 11 to 18 throughout Powys.

As well as providing a confidential service to individuals we also provide information and awareness raising sessions around drug and alcohol issues in schools, colleges, youth clubs  and any other places where young people gather together.

CAIS can also support you if a family member’s substance use is having a negative impact on you, eg. causing you to worry or is making life difficult for you.

We also provide a mentoring and befriending service, where young people are partnered with an adult volunteer to help them to experience new pastimes and hobbies, to access school or college or simply to have an opportunity to meet up and talk to somebody. As well as referrals for young people the mentoring service would like to hear from anybody who is interested in gaining invaluable experience by becoming a volunteer with young people
