Other notes

At The Edge we believe that young people have the right to decide for themselves what treatment/ work they would like to do with us. That means that you do not have to have a parent's permission to come to The Edge. We do have to make sure that you are able to fully understand what work you will be doing here. However, if we feel that you are having difficulty understanding anything we may have to get a parents permission. Also if you are under 13 by law, your parent/carer has to agree to any work you do with us.
