New youth base is named The Hive
A new youth base for Camden will be called The Hive, following a competition for
local young people to choose the name.
The Hive is due to open in Swiss Cottage in August. It will be a safe and welcoming place for Camden young people aged 16 to 24 who may be caught in the gap between children’s and adults’ services. Axis, a new borough-wide health and wellbeing service, will be based at The Hive and will employ a team of young adults trained to help other young people in many areas of their life - including education, employment, housing, social care, health and wellbeing.
The Hive will also be a place for young people to relax, study, meet new people and to get information about local services. There will be spaces for e-learning and personal study, as well as a social enterprise where young people can get experience to help build their CVs.
The Hive and Axis will be managed by Catch22, in partnership with local specialist organisations, while the new base and service has been jointly commissioned by Camden Council and the NHS Camden Clinical Commissioning Group. A Young People’s Board has been involved in the design and delivery at every stage.

Advice and information for all young people living in Camden
This is where, if you are 16 to 24, you can ask about or discuss anything with
someone who will listen and help. Young people come to us with questions about welfare
benefits and housing, education, money advice or personal problems.
