Information & Counselling

 Juice Logo

Got questions about alcohol? Concerned about your drinking or someone else's that you know? Speak to somebody at METRO Juice.

METRO Juice is a free and confidential alcohol information and 1-2-1 counselling service for young people aged 11-25, who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or may be questioning their sexual or gender identity and who have a connection to the South East London area. You can refer yourself or a worker can refer you, but all enquiries will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.

For Professionals

METRO Juice also offers a capacity building service to other organisations in the South East London area, to support and enable them to work more inclusively with young LGBTQ+ people. If you would like more information, please contact Fred on 020 8305 5009 or email us.

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

David - Counselling

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
