The TACTIC Centre

The TACTIC centre is an information and advice centre for young people aged 12 to 21 who live in the Leighton Buzzard, Linslade and surrounding villages and communities.

TACTIC is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 3 until 6pm and Thursday from 3 until 7pm.

TACTIC provides information and advice around topics that young people may face in their lives (including: Sexual Health, Employment, Education, your own or someone else’s drug use, relationships, family, and many more).

TACTIC also has agencies that you can drop in and visit (or ring up to book an appointment). Some of these agencies include: PLAN B (drugs awareness), Brook (sexual health service), 4YP (education and careers advisors), and a Talk Time Counselling (speak to a trained councillor).

The best thing about TACTIC is everything (except fizzy drinks and crisps) is free; this includes TEA and COFFEE.

TACTIC is a completely confidential service. This means that anything you tell a staff member will not be passed on to anyone outside of the TACTIC team without your permission. Only in exceptional circumstances (if you or someone else is at risk of serious harm) would information be passed on, but this would always be discussed with you first.
